Choose


CHOOSE

That marvelous organ, the human eye,
Which we so often use,
Gives us the right to see what we wish,
And even to pick and choose.
Do you choose to see the diners
As they sit around the table?
If you choose to concentrate on them
You'll find that you are able.
But should you choose to see the view
Of the area in the sun,
The grass, the trees, the chairs, the sky,
That's also easily done.
But seeing the two at the same time,
The inside and the out,
Is not such an easy activity,
Of that there is no doubt.
You can switch from one to the other,
With a miniscule little flick.
Your common-or-garden, everyday eye
Can peform a miraculous trick.

CLICK!


A sunset is like happiness..... it's fleeting.
Catch it while the sea and sun are meeting.
It will flash and it will shimmer
Instantly it will grow dimmer
Any clicking camera defeating.

I was lucky with this snap selection!
I pointed in the very best direction.
Normally I miss
Seconds of such bliss
So please enjoy this dazzling perfection!

PS

Ths shot is particularly for Mike. He'll be amused to see Malcolm in his regalia as President of his Probus Club! Here he is introducing yesterday's speaker, who was the retired Editor of  a local paper.

I like your inside outside shot and you're so right about the sunset. I think, though, that sunrise poses a greater problem ;-)

Yes, we all tend to see what we focus on...and miss most of the rest. :))
