Weekly Photo Challenge: One
This week WordPress says:
“Every good photograph needs a focal point. It’s the thing that draws the viewer’s eye and tells the story.
This week, we want to see photos that focus on one thing. Maybe you’ve got a stark photo of a single tree silhouetted against the setting sun, or a lone sandpiper wandering the beach as waves crash.
Perhaps you’ve caught your mother sitting by herself in a moment of quiet contemplation.”
Hello dear friends
It is now Boxing Day … Christmas Day came and went in a flurry of high activity. Hectic, full of people … and children … and food … and presents! What a lovely day we had at our house. I had hoped to get some ‘ONE’ photos then but I was too busy being the Hostess to even give it a thought.
Therefore, you will have to put up with the photos which I took last Christmas holidays (2012) when my daughter and her children joined Geoff and me for a day out at an island off our bay called “Coochiemudlo”. Yes, a very interesting name but I suspect it is an aboriginal word. Us locals refer to the island simply as “Coochie”
It is a lovely little spot and on this particular summer’s day I captured three photos of the children when they were unaware that I was actually photographing them. Therefore, the photos depicting ‘ONE’ are precious, because they are not posing for me. The fourth photo was of a man who was sitting across from us as we waited for the ferry.
Sorry young man … I have no permission to publish this but you were so lost in thought as you waited that I couldn’t resist and hope you will forgive me!
Therefore today, at a time when I have been absolutely surrounded by more people than I can count over Christmas, I present to you photos at the opposite end of the scale – those that depict others deep in thought … under the banner of: ONE
