During an evening sunset in the Californian sun I took this photo. The bokeh background of the rest of the garden (in which the photo was taken) I think works well in contrast to the sharp detail of the blades of grass.
Here is an image I took inside a mission centre in a town called Sonoma. Roughly one and half hours north of San Francisco. I wanted to get a close detailed shot of the cactus with the background environment out of focus.
