When one focuses on the smallest part of a scene it often enters into the abstract when taken away from the whole. Like a poem rather than a novel it requires precision within its telling . For just as a poem has less words so an isolated subject often has less of its surroundings to help give it contex. A blurred background in photography is called bokeh and is a useful effect in adding to this story told by the crabapple blossoms , along with careful composition. In the center one blossom remains in focus while others fade away gently surrounding it in the hues of its comrades , to yield a very understated yet profoundly beautiful image.
