perfecting bad photography . . . 'wordless Wednesday - black swans'

Greetings all,
Enjoying the imperfection ride this week??  I am, it's quite liberating!! 
  
How many photos does it really take for you to capture a decent image??  I have perfected bad photography!!  These were all genuine shots, taken during a picnic by Lake Burley Griffen.  They were not staged to be this hopeless & this is only a sample of the terrible photos i took of the black swans!!  For some decent photography, check out Faith Hope & a Whole Lotta Love for Wordless Wednesday, love Posie

Haha - well, that happens to all of us! The swan is pretty. :-)

Hahaha, you're definitely having a ball this week I can see...
Before Mum's Alzheimer's diagnosis, back when she used to know how to use a camera?? she would always, without fail, chop off the head (or part thereof) of anybody in a photograph. We would know immediately that Mum had taken the shot by the lack of a full body...very funny really...

Oh well, can't be good at everything! And you had fun trying didn't you?

Hot Fudge said...

I love your images. Maybe you could do a little cut & paste job and get one complete swan! I can't tell you how many of these little babies I have in my own collection.

Your fun photos today remind me of jigsaw puzzling - trying to get all the bits to fit to make a montage.

Happy day Lovely and thanks for the giggle.

The photos might not be great - actually they remind me of trying to get photos of my teenagers - photos are not cool apparently!

Hazel said...

Hilarious, those swans are hard subjects to catch!

Mum on the Run said...

Brilliant.
In an imperfect kinda way.

Couldn't help giggling away at this - I had exactly the same problem trying to photograph a horse a while ago! Kept missing!

Hilarious! Some would even perhaps say 'creative'!

LionessLady said...

Oh my gosh Posie! You have managed to cut a bit off in every shot! Classic!

You're hilarious Posie! I think your swan photos are very arty... yes, I think you should go with arty :o)
They're cheeky little devils those black swans, snappy too! xo

Sonia @ Life Love and Hiccups said...

That is seriously funny, but I so get it. I have about 10 bad shots to the one average one :) xx

Catherine said...

Love them all:) You just need a better subject I think, what a difficult client you had;) xo

Posie Patchwork said...

Oh there were so many photos which were so much worse!! I did capture some good shots, 'some' but goy it was a good 10 bad: 1 good ratio, love Posie

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I had to laugh at your Christmas book faux pas - my Mom found more than one book she didn't expect to wind up in her home, especially when we all trooped in and out of the library with armfuls of books every week.

Apologies if this is a double post - my computer threw a fit. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I had to laugh at your Christmas books faux pas - my Mom found more than one unapproved book in her home, particularly when we all trooped in and out of the library with armfuls of books every week.
