Stepping Down - Vintage Helios 44-2 lens

This is Ruby on our garden steps, that lead from the patio area to the garden.

Shot with a vintage Helios 44-2 58mm f2 lens, on my Sony A7

Shot wide open to get some lovely bokeh.

If you look towards the top right hand corner you will see some purple bokeh. The purple bokeh being the lavender photo I shot yesterday while chasing bees and hoverflies.

I was tempted to post the mono version of this photo, but I quite like the greens (which act as a vignette) surrounding Ruby.
Beautiful clarity...I like the green too

I agree, the greens frame lovely Ruby perfectly.

Love the way she is coming down towards you :) She is a handsome lady!

I wish I could read Ruby's mind to see what she thinks of all the pictures you take of her. Well, I'm sure she is very happy with the results. Beautiful shot and a great background to complement your 'joy of life' dog.

Aww, Ruby is so lovely, bless her. I agree, the green bushes do add nice framing.
