Day 107

My cousins from Seattle came down to stay in town for a week. So while they were playing in the yard I was standing on the porch snapping their pictures with my 75-300mm lens. This worked out great because I could get far enough away that they didn't really care that I was taking their picture. I got some great action shots but the depth of field in this picture really struck me. My brother is in focus while my little cousin is out of focus but maintains the status of main subject of the photo. I love small apertures and this picture demonstrates it very well.
