A Hint of Life

As a photographer you always have to look for a shot that is interesting and that no one has ever captured before, even if you are shooting subjects that have been shot many times before you.
Here I spotted this tumble weed with still a hint of green as was just a bit of the tall grass in the four ground.
I let camera focus on the weed to give it more power in the image, giving the old house and clouds in the sky a soft look.
"A Hint of Life" refers to the dying weed with old abandoned home never to return to it's former glory.
Those that know some of my shooting tricks will get how this image was captured.....
