Out of Context!

It can be a blurred picture, a fail focus, anything. Sorry for the boring theme And if you were expecting a winter theme. ^^;

Have fun with this one. ^^

 

Yus, the normal stuff:

Rules:

- One entry per person

- No manipulation besides basic photo adjustments (contrast, exposure, cropping, color balance, lighting, etc.)

- No text or framing in the photo. A signature/watermark is just fine, but it's preferable if you don't have "O Hai Eye Hav3 T3XT" (or something similar) present in the photo.

- When voting, please don't select your own image. This will ensure fairness.

- You are free to submit an old photo, you don't need to take a new one just for this competition.

Not a problem, lachrymation!

 

This one is from last Christmas (as in Dec 2009). It's a photo of my aunt's fishpond.

 

Edit for link fail.

I'm happy that it's a theme I already have a picture to. (: My camera don't feel all too good right now, at least the lens I had on it, the camera itself survived, so I can't get a new photo for at least one week or so.

I was taking pics of birds on my balcony and in this one, the focus isn't on the bird.

Kept it because I just loved the pose of the bird:

"Thxforthefoodkbai" *hop*

Fail sunset!

 

Not only did I forget to turn my flash off, but the focus is weird. But I love how it came out!

I thought, Oh, the pier must look great when I stand here in the tunnel (under the boulevard) and focus on the lovely light from the sunrise...

 

Allthough I failed completely, it is one of the better shots I took that day xd.png

Funny story:

So I was at camp with a digital camera, and during lunch, the two boys at my table said that they could make my camera flash without taking a picture. They told me to wind it up and then whack it against the table a few times, and I did, and it flashed. When I got the photos(it was a disposable camera), the last picture, instead of the one I took later, was this. It took me a while to figure out what it was, but then I realized there were my fingers at the bottom, the glass I drank out of in the center, and the barely visible faces of those two guys. at first, I was pretty mad, but now I look back at it and laugh!
