Picture Summer - 11 & 12

Day 11 - "Treat Yourself" - the idea was to capture a photo of a summer treat. And while this isn't popsicles or milkshakes, it does the trick for me! And note how I was busy with the aperture again!

Day 12 - "Simple Solitude" - I was combining Shimelle's Prompt 7 "Depth of Field" study with the Picture Spring day 12 Solitude prompt and came up with these:

I love how that single leaf stands out against the canopy of the tree.

And this lonely little leaf on the driveway screams solitude to me. Here I was focusing on the texture of the leaf against the texture of the driveway and you can see that both the very near foreground and the background are blurred. I was down pretty low.

These shots are fabulous :-)

What's in the first pic? Is it banana loaf with nuts in? Or am I completely wide of the mark?!
