I took a still photo of a yellow flower with my 35mm Minolta SRT101 with a 100mm Macro lens. When i got the film back and looked at the photo, it looks great BUT the background that is out of focus is blue. Now the thing is, there was nothing around me that was blue. Only things out of focus was the brown mulch and the green from the stem. How did it get a blue background???

Perhaps an automatic printer was used that has integrated your negative to grey. If the picture is dominated by a yellow flower it will correct and make the colour balance bluer hence making the background blue.
