Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken during the Summer in one of the urban park areas in the 'Eco-famous' Västra Hamnen in Malmö, Sweden.
Time
I was walking around a lot of Malmö this day with my new 100mmL Macro lens, enjoying the Summer atmosphere in a town I had just moved to... this was taken sometime in the afternoon as far as I remember.
Lighting
The light was strong but diffused with passing clouds, which made for perfect use of shallow DOF and even light throughout the garden area.
Equipment
I was using my Canon 5Dmk2 with a Canon 100mmL macro lens.
Inspiration
I was actually trying to capture the bees feeding off the flowers, and stepped back a little to review my work when I saw this shot. Just out of frame were many people enjoying the day, and not so pretty concrete walls etc... so this just illustrated what you can find when you narrow your FL :)
Editing
Only post processing was slight colour adjustment and levels.
In my camera bag
I travel with a Canon 5Dmk4 now, and have a Canon 70D as backup. Lenses include 16-35mm f2.8 L, 24-70mm f2.8 L, 70-200mm f4 IS L, and 100mm f2.8 L IS macro.
Feedback
Take a day just walking around with a prime lens... walk up to the subjects, take in what is around at the focal length you have. You would be amazed as what you can find :)
