I applied the same focusing trick as using the lensbaby muse – focusing on repeated objects spanning a distance. It is impossible to miss all of them. The picture must have something sharply focused. The results often surprise me.

Capturing specific object requires some luck. Luck was with me while I was taking some pictures.
