Unexpected focus

A Photo a Week Challenge: Unexpected Focus

I was trying to get a photo of the Cape Waterlily flower in the middle of my dam when my eye caught something on the flower but I didn’t realise there was a Dwarf Green Tree Frog basking in the afternoon sun.

A bit of a funny that may cheer your day

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?”

Is it right

Nancy’s Photo a Week Challenge: Off-center

I thought I’d just post two photos that I think are off-center but a very different. I would like to know your thoughts mainly about this photo of Eastern Curlews coming into land. If it’s not off-center what would you call it?

This is a bit obviously off-center but is it too much off-center?

Photo a Week: Christmas

Due to my current situation, as my cousin put it, being a Neuro-prisoner and not being able to get out and shop apart from a quick trip to town on weekends with my daughter to do grocery shopping, my Christmas has been put on hold. Sure I’ll get together with my besties and my family but no presents this year and totally uninspired to even make presents as I would have done in the past.

Speaking of the past, here’s a journey into previous Christmases

Celebration

The word prompt from Nancy’s Photo a Week: Celebration

The display from last month Lismore Lantern Parade which ended with fireworks. Before the fireworks, a dance with flaming torches culminating in a fiery burning sparkling show.
