Michael Pick would like me to do something different in the background – me, not the scenery. No wonder they call it a challenge. People/objects we know and love, or who are interesting are usually the focus of our thoughts and pictures. Now Michael I’m not happy about this. I’m having to think – AGAIN, and I just did that yesterday. I mean really, I do have some excellent background pictures with Manny in the foreground and San Diego Bay in the background. Won’t that do, Michael?
That is surely better than this next one in which Manny is clearly the center of attention.
Then I thought about our trip to Hawaii last year. Vince and I were both more fascinated with the views than with having OUR PICTURES as the highlight. We were both taken with this long set of steps down to the beach on the island of Maui. Ever been here in Honolua-Mokuleia Bay?
We both posed, but IN THE BACKGROUND, Michael.
I’m not mad, mind you, but instead of taking 15 minutes like I planned to take to whip through this challenge, it took – well let’s just say I didn’t get my walk in. Oh well, I have proof that I have at least climbed some stairs in the last year or so.
Now if important figures, are supposed to be big, but out of focus, I think I have just gained the photographic ability to do that, but you can tell me if this is what you mean. It was an accident.
Thanks for making me think today. 🙂
