Sometimes it pays off to take a hundred shots of something - this is beautifully bold and unique.

Swim,swoon,and swam away.

My neighbor from 4 houses away trimmed their tall vegetation and then left a pile of it beside their house.After some time the grass dried up and became golden brown.This was exciting for me,because I rarely get to go to those beautiful fields with tall golden grass.And when I do,I'm never guaranteed of a blue sky.
And since it was very thin and small-ish,small things look normal-sized beside it.

Tiring shoot.Had to try lots of poses for the fish.Probably took more than 150 shots.In the hot sun behind a pile of dried to-be-thrown-away grass.My friend cycled by and he said that I was a crazy photographer.That's not the first time he said that too,haha.
Finally I got one that I like.This picture was alot of fun to edit because the colors in it were the primary colors blue and yellow.I could push it in any way and they still don't look strange.Compare this to skin tones,where pushing colors are alot trickier.
