Dutch goes the Photo word prompt Message inspired me and I just had to put this photo up again.

I saw this on the street in Ballina, a town just up the road a ways. At the time, and still now a couple of years later, it is a silent protest at the Australian Government holding refugee children in detention.

Focus

The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge this week is Focus

One of my favourite things is to have some photos not quite in focus or have an element that has a sharp edge whilst the rest of the photo has a soft focus.

I found the shadows on the leaf of the Birds-nest Fern interesting. What can you see?

Looking through the window of the abandoned building – leaves, sky and can you see the machine?

An old joke I found on Focus

Twin sisters in St. Luke’s Nursing Home were turning one hundred years old. The editor of the local newspaper told a photographer to get over there and take pictures of the two 100 year old twins.

One of the twins was hard of hearing and the other could hear quite well.

Once the photographer arrived he asked the sisters to sit on the sofa. The deaf sister said to her twin, “WHAT DID HE SAY?”

“WE GOTTA SIT OVER THERE ON THE SOFA!”, said the other.

“Now get a little closer together,” said the cameraman.

Again, “WHAT DID HE SAY?”

“HE SAYS SQUEEZE TOGETHER A LITTLE.” So they wiggled up close to each other.

“Just hold on for a bit longer, I’ve got to focus a little,” said the photographer.

Yet again, “WHAT DID HE SAY?”

“HE SAYS HE’S GONNA FOCUS!”

With a big grin the deaf twin shouted out, “OH MY GOD – BOTH OF US?”
