It was such a beautiful summer evening today in Vancouver. Amy, Annelies and I soaked up some evening sun in the local park, and of course I brought my camera. Annelies was enjoying it, as did we. Because of the bright sun, you normally cannot use large apertures, as the picture would be over exposed. My camera however, has a built-in neutral density filter that you can activate. This enables you to get shallow depth of field in bright outdoor environments. Without it, I would have been forced to close the aperture all the way down to f/16, so I would have lost the nice blur in foreground and background. My Flickr photostream has another picture of mum and Annelies.
