The Last Tango


The Last Tango
The Heart of Life
Before the Fall
of all the Leaves

Photography/ “The Last Tango” October 2016©AmyRose

Do you see the Heart?
Do you see the trees doing the Tango?

❤ ❤ ❤

Do you see what I see?  Is this not way cool?  I honestly couldn’t believe my eyes when I stood looking down at this scene.  How incredible that the leaves because of the angle I was standing formed a Heart and then when I looked further, I actually could see the trees dancing.  There is a play of shadow and light and contrast that makes this all possible.  (smile)

I changed one of my settings in my Canon that controls sharpness, decreasing the amount of sharpness.  And I am really liking the outcome.  I do not like leaves looking sharp or harsh, but soft and almost dreamy.  When I use my phone camera the images though extremely clear yes, make leaves look too sharp.  No.  Not to my liking at all.

When I shot this series of photos that I am now showing you I was just tickled pink, so please when I saw how the leaves look.  Thank goodness I can control how I want my images to look like on my Canon whereas on my phone camera I cannot.  Even though my cellphone is convenient and easy to use I prefer my Canon any day over that of my cellphone when it comes to my photographs.

Much was accomplished yesterday so hopefully my day today will not be a marathon.  Friends, when I get busy it gets a bit hairy.  Today comments are open and yes I will be here at WP as much as possible.  (smile)

    1. You certainly may, Luv. I am using a Canon EOS 6D with an EF 24-105Lmm lens, all with a UV/haze filter and a .6ND filter on that lens. Do you need me to explain any of those terms or are you familiar with them? 🙂 ❤

      1. If you need help or if you are really serious about getting a professional camera, email me. I’ll do my best to help. It can be SO overwhelming and unnerving. It still is for me and I’ve been at this for years. ND stands for Neutral Density filter and it is used to even out lights and darks especially sky. Those come in all different grades and types too. Sorry but true. 🙂 ❤

      2. Thank you dear sweet Amy, but I think I will stick to my iphone… 🙂
        I will leave the real Photography up to professionals like you my dear. I need a point, aim, shoot type of camera… 🙂

    1. And I discovered so much more, Carol. How I need that green to surround me and the bright colors as well as I edit each image. It’s been a hard period of time waiting to hear how my friend George is. So God and Mother provided for me miracle after miracle to keep me occupied. I am so grateful!!! Much love, ❤

    1. Hope you had a good day too, Kathy! I am truly humbled and stunned at all the Gifts Mother showed me that day. It is like a pinch me experience to make sure it really happened. It was so cute because my sister called me on my cell during that hike, and for her to do so meant she really needed to talk. So I picked up and put her on speaker and stuck “her” in my pocket explaining I just had to keep on shooting. So for almost one hour a voice was coming out of my pocket, I spoke to that pocket and I kept on shooting with my camera. I kept saying to her I wish I could take a picture of what I am saying so I could send to you but I can’t cause I’m talking to you. And because the day was so heavy with clouds our voices were really loud and reverberating. True story. The things I do. LOL ❤

    1. Aw, Marissa, thank you!! More of this series is coming. I am so happy you are enjoying them. I have one post that has such lush canopies of branches arching over the road … And people don’t think magic exists. I differ with them! 🙂 ❤


    1. Honey, you have been on my mind, so very concerned about you. Please email me so I can get in to your blog. I’ve really missed you too and I hope really pray you are OK. Not sure if you have my email …. I have been having such a Love affair with my NEW camera and this image and whole lot of others was taken on a very very special magical day. Love you!!! ❤

      1. Thanks, Amy. I’ll drop you an email with the password after I get the kids to bed. I’m okay, now. I mean, I wasn’t okay…but I am now. 😊 life is so strange sometimes!

        I’ve certainly missed your talent though! Your images brighten up even my darkest days. Love you too ❤️

  1. Very cool ~ and while I was anticipating some photos of you well into the tango, the trees and shadows did just as well as a substitute 🙂 Also, gotta love the verse as well ~ the precious beautiful time of the year before the silence of winter comes.

    1. Unfortunately I do not know how to tango, Randall, but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t want to learn. The tango is hot, sexy and oh how I would love love love to learn how to move like that in dance. 🙂 Winter can take as long as She wants to get here. You won’t hear me complain. 🙂


  2. I love it Amy, that will keep your lenses in perpetual shade (no glare on the lense), and dry on a rainy day 😀
    Slightly larger than the one I a saw, but hey, this is better 🙂
    A question if I may…how does the weight feel, and movement for you?

    1. It’s not bad, Mark. It really is light and surprisingly it is comfortable. The only thing is if there is a wind forget it. It does come with a strap to hold it in place but any wind will easily take off with it. If you want I’ll send you the link for the one I bought. I have to use my laptop for that though. 🙂

  3. Amy, I truly enjoy your posts. Btw, I noticed the heart immediately. You truly have a gift to capture beauty in words and images. Your posts are a blessing to your readers. Thank you. Have a wonderful week.

    1. You are most welcome, Noora. I am just now beginning to work on the posts for this week. I have yet to see what jewels I captured, yet I know there are some. I Love it when I just stare at my images in my editor. It is there many times I see things that I missed while taking the picture itself. How amazing is that??? ❤


  4. That’s lovely, Amy, and to capture the heart there, just wonderful. What a camera you have that you can change so many things to suit. You are probably still learning everything that is possible, as there’s so much there, but the results are so worth it. Thanks for sharing xx.
