The Muffed Target #13
Thom has taken over Gattinaâ€™s meme invention, Muffed Target Photo Meme. The idea is to share our photos that didnâ€™t turn out. Come on, you know we all have them! You share yours and Iâ€™ll share mine!
This will give you some idea of what my uncorrected eyesight is like. Without my glasses the world I live in is all soft and blurry.
I am nearsighted. I propped my glasses on top of my head while I fiddled with my camera, changed my settings and light meter and read all the fine print on the buttons, dials and menu screen. Then I put the camera to my eye, focused (I thought) and snapped the pic. Oops.
The beauty of this flower still shines through your shot. A blurred vision belongs to me, too. I rarely put off my glasses, because than I have a real hard time to find them again.
Rosidah — I have the same problem with my glasses. If I take them off I put them always in the same place or on top of my head, otherwise I can’t find them,. I also keep a spare set of glasses in the medicine cabinet. they are too old and not the right prescription, but much better than no glasses at all. I have used them many times to help me find my glasses after I have inadvertantly put them down or dropped them. (I can’t see close up with my glasses on.)
What do you know. That’s how I see all the time as well when I’m trying to see something close up. Thanks for playing. The flower is still beautiful 🙂
Thom — you may need to get reading glasses old man!
Even your muffed pictures look really good.
Nessa, thanks. The composition is good, at least.
But soft focus is nice! 😉
Thank you, Akelamalu.
I see everything from afar in a Blurr. I actually have to remove my glasses to see things properly up close. My Spectacles are supposed to be bifocals, but they are anything but. It’s time to get them rechecked anyway.
forgot to say, you soft focus picture looks great, sometimes the photographer wanted a soft focus.
Bill — my eyes are exactly the same. I take my glasses off to read or do detail work.
Before my Lasik, which my sweet husband gave me for our 15th anniversary, I would have been doing good to differentiate between the flower and a ball!
Linda — I think my eyes are a little better than that, but not much!
I think they sell special camera lenses to do exactly what you did on your own. 😉
Karen, if I ever want a soft focus pic, I’ll remember to take my glasses off. Much less expensive then new camera equipment!
That reminds me… I need to make an eye appointment.
LOL! Glad I could help, Melli.
Yikes! I too am near sighted. But as I age, I now need reading glasses!
Church Lady — It is just the opposite for me.
It’s still a beautiful shot…
Thanks, that was sweet. Are you really Bud? 😉
I am the opposite — that is how words look on a page without glasses.
I actually like this — kind of like an impressionistic painting.
Barbara — it is my supposition that the first impressionistic painters were in need of glasses and they simply painted what they saw. My experience with this photograph does provide some support for my theory. 😉
even if blurred, the flower (dahlia?) looks pretty
Polona — thanks. that’s why I was trying to photograph it! (Yeah, I know what you meant.)
Just a tad sharper and it could be a soft focus image SOOTC!
Uh, um, glasses weren’t meant to be worn on top of the head. 🙂
I like your comment to Barbara. I’d never thought of it that way.
Carletta — I know! Just a little less fuzz and I could have pretended it was deliberate! 😉
I like the soft ‘muffedness’ in this one.
Gives it a dreamy flair!
Hehe, but I am glad you got all the settings right *snicker* 😉
