    Yesterday I ventured to the nearby "Celery Bog" despite high heat and extreme humidity. I got a number of good shots, all with the P 14-140.Though I wish I had brought a cumbersome 85~210mm and tripod, it was struggle for me without carrying the burden of equipment. More images to be posted later.

    Caimi - I hoped you would see this set. More to follow shortly. It's an amazing land/waterscape, a 5 minute drive from home. I really loved the "Reflected Geometries". I was afraid they were too much like wallpaper without a center point of interest. What do you think?

    All were shot using 14~140. Only this past month, I learned from dbuckles that bokeh was achieved at f/4 and above using a telephoto lens. This was shot at 1/640 sec; f/6.3; ISO 160.

    More Celery Bog

    This is the last set for the moment, but I may have to return on an early morning with a longer lens too. Can anyone identify the plant in the 3rd image?

    1st shot looks just a wee bit like some areas in Louisiana...

    The reflected geometries image looks more random, less geometric to me. Also, it might benefit from a smaller aperture. I think the water needs to be sharper. Also, the leaves at the bottom of the frame work against the geometry idea. My favorite is the jumble of signs. I'm partial to images that show the effect of people on the landscape.

    All in all it looks like a great place to spend a day photographing.

    The plant looks like osage orange. When I was growing up our house abutted a wooded area and they were everywhere. I used to throw the fruit at my brother

    What is a celery bog? In Florida this would be called a swamp.

    They sure have the shape, texture and color of a larger fruit we call hedge apples a.k.a osage orange. I've not seen the former tree, though they are reasonably common here. I'll have to check these later i the season.

    Do you have Paw-Paws in your area?They are delicious, but have a very short "shelf life". I cut them in half diagonally eating them out of their skin with a spoon.

    Paw-paw's I'm not familiar with. We never ate the osage orange fruit either. I always thought they were poison but that may have been a kid thing.

    You must try to locate paw paws. They are fairly extensive throughout the Midwest. They're ripe when they fall from the tree.

    DON'T EAT THE OSAGE ORANGE! I don't know if it's toxic, but certainly to be avoided. I've eaten it's big cousin jack fruit. It's very good. had it big cousin Jack Fruiitedible
