Out of Focus

Salford 19th June 2017

in response to wordpress photo challenge Focus

Blurred Church

Here’s a Pic of A Greek Chapel, in Crete taken during a recent family holiday.

I played around with the depth of field in this shot – concentrating the focus on the chapel and the bench outside.

Being a chapel – I couldn’t take a shot of the inside.  So i concentrated on the area around it!

Camera used was my Trusty Digital Stills Camera from Sony, additional tweaks to the Depth of field was done using Adobe photoshop elements.

And for those who wanted to see the original pic of the chapel – here it is….

Perfume

A poem written by inkdrop for the daily post : Perfume

Salford (via Heraklion) , 10th May 2017

Perhaps it was her eyes that first attracted me

Everyone stopped – freeze frame as we met

Reaction to that wonderful smile – unabashed, but

From that day on, she seemed to be everywhere

Unusually, i couldnt see her around, was my

Memory playing tricks on me ?

Even the blossom’s sent a message of her

Scarlet

#coloryourworld #cyw #Scarlet

She caught my view, in the Cretan sunshine

Casting a watchful eye over the fruits of the island

As our gazes met briefly, we smiled at one-another

Reacting to a momentary attraction

Long haired red head, with eyes of green

Enchanting young lady – with chance to meet at

The next mornings breakfast

25th February 2017

Calm waters lapping on a tropical bay

As gentle breezes temper the rising mercury

Relax in your hammock – under the shade of a palm

It’s a wonderful moment,

Being by the jewel clear waters

Beaches – with cool white sand

Each holding a special moment

As you soak up the sun in the day – and at

Night, dance under the light of the moon

 

 

Sea green

I walked out on the sea

toward ocean blue

the fish 🐟 they were keen

they followed me too

 

waves gently moving

from sea onto shore

minnows circling round my feet

on the sea floor

 

and out there in the shallows

the waters light blue green

a gem of crystal waters

in winter rarely seen

 

my feet the fish 🐟 they circle

as they travel round the bay

as I enjoy a paddle

watching things around the way

Early morning sunrise 🌅

the fishing boats crews asleep in bed

no one here but me and the sea 🌊

stillness of air and silence

only broken by the smallest of waves

lapping on the shore

burying my toes into uncharted sand

and tiny pebbles washed by the sea

enjoying the silence and the slightest of breezes
