The Muffed Target ~ #27

The Muffed Photo Meme is sponsored by Thom “Bite Me” Robinson, and can be found every Tuesday 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!

His name is Jason, but he’s not a slasher-movie monster. This is an otherwise perfect photo-portrait ruined by the shimmering heatwaves rising from the campfire. In it’s own way it is cool, but it isn’t what I saw through my viewfinder when I clicked the shutter. The camera picks up things our own eyes can’t see.

The altar at church should have made a lovely photo, but alas, I couldn’t hold still. Even though the pic looks light, the sanctuary wasn’t well lit and I couldn’t stand still during the longer exposure.

I swear, there were two woodpeckers — Mr. & Mrs. Downy — on the rail when I sighted this shot in. They flew up onto the feeder just as I pressed the shutter.

No explanation necessary. Poorly focused.

The Muffed Target #15

Thom has taken over Gattina’s meme invention, Muffed Target Photo Meme. The idea is to share our photos that didn’t turn out. Come on, you know we all have them! You share yours and I’ll share mine!

As promised, here are more of the rose bush shots from the day I first tried out my new macro lenses.

Rose Leaf & Water Drops

Rose Leaf with Water Drops

The focus on the water drop is perfect, but the leaves, not so much.

Rose Leaf & Water Drop

Rose Leaves With a Water Drop

I would like this one if I could have managed to get the leading edge of the leaf in focus as well.

Bee Butt

Rose Leaf With a Magnified Bee Butt in a Water Drop

Didn’t even see the bee butt until I downloaded this.  It is the photo’s saving grace.

Rose Leaf

Rose Leaf Edge & Water Drop

And then the sun came out.  If only the tip of the leaf were in focus.  If so, I would call this perfect.
