There's been a lot of road work around here lately. As I was taking this shot, one of the construction workers (the foreman?) came up to me and jokingly asked if he was in trouble. We got started talking about the construction, and he explained that they're having to put in a much larger sewer pipe to handle a large apartment complex currently being built.
I've had some fun over the last couple of weeks taking deliberately out-of-focus shots of a flower bed near where I work. The reduction to shape and color makes composition the main thing I need to focus on.
