52 Weeks of Life Seen Through My Eyes

Ida's Photo Theme Challenge

39. Shallow Depth of Field


Being a totally amateur photographer with just my point and shoot camera, I had no idea what was expected concerning this theme. Later, perusing the photos I took on a recent road trip to Panama City, my husband pointed out that one of my photos fit the theme. The skeptical side of me had me Googling shallow depth of field images. By golly, he was right. My friends know I probably shouldn’t question my husband’s depth of knowledge which is certainly not shallow. While driving into the city on what was turning out to be another gray, rainy day, we stopped at a popular place for locals to watch the activity on the Panama Canal. One of the Celebrity Cruise ships was docked and appeared to be undergoing maintenance of some kind, but there was also the usual activity associated with the Canal and the port. I snapped this photo looking back at a ship passing under the Centennial Bridge along the Canal route. Initially I thought it was unfortunate that the chain link fence hampered my view, but actually it gave me an opportunity of unwittingly fulfilling the theme, “Shallow Depth of Field”.

  1. this is beautiful! great idea!


  2. Ida, in photography, one of the first things I learned about the great shots I took that other people commented on was to simply say, “Thank You.” They’ll never know that great photo was a total mistake and I never knew just exactly what I did to make it so good! LOL
