The Muffed Target #16

The Muffed Photo Meme is sponsored by Thom “Bite Me” Robinson, and can be found every Tuesday (actually usually as early as Monday afternoon) on his blog, Thom’s Place 4 Well, Whatever.  Believe me, this meme really fits in his “well whatever” category:

Each Tuesday post a completely crazy, messed up photo — one you would normally delete.  The subject matter isn’t important — did you take a picture of your thumb?  The lens cap?  The wrong half of great Aunt Betty? (Really, she usually has a head …)  Or perhaps you’ve got a shot of your own nose hairs taken while you were trying to determine why the flash wasn’t working.  Whatever your photo goof is, we want to see it!

So, let’s all expose our photo flubs.  You show me yours and I’ll show you mine!

This is why one should stand still when taking photos. I was in a hurry to capture the scene and snapped the shutter while I was walking. Luckily, I took two shots and I came to a complete stand still before snapping the shutter the second time. I will share that pic tomorrow in my apple picking post.


  1. LOL. What kind of plant is that? It looks like some decoration of some sort. Perfect fir this. It’s got nice colors I must say

    Thanks for playing. Much appreciated

  2. Quilly, this makes me feel like I need to blink really hard a couple of times to clear things up — but nothing happens!

    Thanks for sharing! Looking forward to the still and clear version tomorrow!

  3. I did make out the little girl, and, wow, the apples look red and ripe! I agree with what Pink and Kelley said — it almost looks Impressionistic but does make you feel you need to blink to clear things up.

  4. Impressionism comes to photography! Or I need my eyes checked again.
    I can see apples, so I’m looking forward to your apple post!

    1. Sorry, Linda — if you’re having migraine issues, you shouldn’t be looking at the computer screen! And, I recently read in “Eat This & Live! For Kids” that many frequent headache and migraine sufferers find relief from their symptoms when they increase their daily water intake — clear, clean water.

    1. Thanks, Betty. This photo does have a bit of charm, but I think once you see the focused shot you’ll agree it is much better!

  5. Quilly I love the concept of it…like modern art. : ) Apple picking is one of my fav Fall things to do. We are pretty much at end of picking season now here on the big island east coast, but I am baking a lot with apples from the farm stands. Thanks for sharing this.

    1. Kathy — apple eating is one of my fave fall things to do! Believe it or not, we didn’t keep any of the apples we picked!

      1. WOW! I just saw the rest of the photos you posted, including the one that came out great (not like the reject). Great shots! I love the lighting there. Have a great day!
        : )

  6. It’s really kind of pretty. It makes me think of the Impressionists. Kind of like looking through a wet window.
