I've been practicing manual focus which is really hard for me, but when I do manage to get it to work, the result is awesome and I love it. A number of these were taken in manual focus.
With Whom Is No Variableness,
Neither Shadow of Turning
Arthur Hugh Clough
It fortifies my soul to know
That, though I perish, Truth is so:
That, howsoe'er I stray and range,
Whate'er I do, Thou dost not change.
I steadier step when I recall
That, if I slip, Thou dost not fall.
