Tuesday Photo Challenge – Focus

The challenge for you is to take focus into your preferred direction. There are many ways that you can take this: in focus, out of focus, a look of focus on someone’s face, you name it! Let your creative minds wander happily and keep your focus on the theme!

You can join in with Frank’s above challenge here:

Although I love photography, I am a hit and miss kinda gal, and if I get a decent shot, it’s usually more by luck than judgement.
In today’s age of digital cameras and magic, you can tweak and enhance your photos whereas when I was a young girl, a lot of my 24 film shots were out of focus, people had their heads chopped off, or I had nice pictures of the inside of my pocket or my handbag.

However, there is one picture that is out of focus but amazingly haunting for the poem I wrote for it way back in September 2016

How many years have they watched things grow
From Summer’s sun, to Winter’s snow.
Shadowy Sentinels, the guardians of waters blue,
Embracing Nature patterned in morning dew,
What have they seen from day thru night,
Mysterious secrets of dark to light.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    That’s such a cool photo!

  2. The perfect image for the mystery of the poem. I guess sometimes a lack of focus is exactly what’s needed.
