This was taken at Boboli Gardens, in Florence. Whilst the wife was asleep on the grass, I noticed the many relaxed individuals around me. I wanted to capture that mood of relaxation and chilling out one experiences in such wonderful gardens. I placed the camera on the ground, focused on a nearby set of flowers and made sure that the background would be a blur of what is clearly people relaxing. This isn't a shot about the persons in the picture, it's about how one feels when surrounded by such a relaxing atmosphere, and I hope the shot works to that effect.
As ever with my work, comments, critique, mods and votes welcome! Thank you!!
