This was taken in June 2011 as I was walking in Teatown Reservation. It wasn’t that early, but the leaf was in a shady area and I suppose the dew had not been able to evaporate. I was really taken by the, what seemed to me, large number of of water droplets of different sizes. I particularly liked the contrast with the solitary red one – I wonder why just that one was red and none of the others.
Taken with a Panasonic Lumix LX-3. I was surprised at how blurred the background was. It’s quite hard to get such a blurred background with a small sensor camera such as the LX-3. I suppose close up and with a large aperture (here it was f2.0, as wide open as the LX-3 gets) is the only possibility.
