EDITOR'S PICK, betterphoto.com, July 2009
Well. If this week is any indication, I'm not going to be able to keep up the one photo per day ideal. Like maybe one every 3 or 4 days. :( My kindergarten kids were very busy today and I am worn out!
Please excuse me, fellow daily photogs, if I don't have a chance to reply in kind to your helpful comments quickly - it may take me a while!

I've been meaning to take a shot of this fan for quite a while and this just struck me as the time to do it. This is a close up of a portion of a lady's dance fan. It's a fan carried in the category of women's traditional dance, part of the usual regalia for Native American dancing at powwows. I don't dance, but I do have this fan I got at a powwow sitting on my dresser.

I like the colors but the focus bothers me. I would have liked for the bottom right to be more in focus also, and then fade out the focus as it heads back to the top left.
