Stopping Down

In photography, aperture refers to the variable opening in a camera’s lens through which light passes. It dictates how much light gets in and ultimately affects what the picture looks like. Shrinking the opening is called stopping down.

Interestingly, smaller apertures create greater depth of field. I will operate at this end of the spectrum. I’m stopping down. In the lenses I point at the world, the iris will be quite small, in other words, the pieces will be short. But just as is it is with photography, hopefully they’ll also offer depth.

Below is my second Drop: Generosity.
