Weekly Photo Challenge: Two Subjects

Hi F&F,

This week’s photo challenge called for a little photographic multitasking.  One frame with two subjects was the goal.  Today I’m posting two photos for the challenge.  Each contains two subjects; for a grand total of four subjects on display.

I’m sharing two subjects × two  because I see the world through eyeglasses and  I’ve been  called four eyes (kids can be cruel). 😦   I guess,  I’m presenting one subject for each of my four eyes.

You will have to judge, with your own eyes,  if my entry meets the challenge. I really hope you like the photos, but if you don’t — you can  just cover your eyes.  😀

    I think both meet the challenge and I especially like the second one as it is unexpected.
    Good choices. Thanks for the pingback. I too, see the world with four eyes and remember the taunting from classmates but what I also remember was the day I got glasses I could see individual leaves on the trees instead of a green blur! I was amazed.

    • Hi Rutheh,

      Thanks for visiting and commenting. I can relate to your eye-opening experience. When I first got my glasses the world looked sharp enough to cut you.

      The gift of eyesight is a Blessing.


  2. excellent choices and both so different from the other. well done.

    Oh, Rutheh touches a nerve! The day I got glasses (I was seven) and was walking home from the optometrist’s, I saw these sharp edges on the leaves on the trees instead of the familiar soft green blur — and I cried. (Not tears of joy, tears of loss.)

    • Hi Touch,

      I mentioned to Rutheh that I had a similar experience when first putting on the glasses. I think I can understand your sense of loss. The soft focus of the past suddenly gave way to all the hard sharp edges. Glasses may have revealed a more dangerous and less user-friendly world.

      I believe, we four eyes have a greater appreciation for the saying “God is in the details”. 🙂

    I like both photos. The second one is my favorite. Nice post 🙂 Judy

    • Thank you, Judy. Both pictures were taken last summer in Brooklyn. The second photo was taken at a concert at The Weeksville Heritage Center, an institution that has preserved a part of history. I know you have an interest in history. You should check out The Weekly Nabe blog . The author, Keith, is exploring all the neighborhoods of Brooklyn. His posts are well researched and have loads of pictures. I discovered him via his post about my neighborhood, Clinton Hill.

  13. Great choices, love the brilliant pink in the flower. Nice post.

    • Thanks for visiting Marcia. I am very afraid of flying insects, but I was as attacted to the flowers as the bees. The bees were everywhere, but somehow I overcame my fears and stood in the middle of them to get shot. I captured many interesting images yet the one for the challenge is my fav. Thanks for your support.

    2×2 – gorgeous echinaceas and bee!

  20. Both entries are just as beautiful in their unique way. The first makes you appreciate the beauty of nature. The other makes you appreciate the talents and influence of people around us. Wonderful post.

  26. My vote is for the second photo! I love shows/concerts and appreciate how challenging it is to take pics at them!
    Also, I hope everyone visiting this page has time to read through the comments. You’re missing out on an interesting link (and good conversation) if you don’t!

    • Hi SmallHBigG,

      I’m glad you liked concert photo. I was up on my feet and dancing in place, like most of the crowd, but eventually I became too pooped to pop. Fortunately, I had enough energy to take a few photos.

      Thanks for plugging the comments. I love the sharing that blogging encourages.

    i used to have four-eyes; after building up the courage to have lasik surgery, i now have two… but i remember for two weeks right after the surgery, i’d rise in the morning groping around blindly with half-shut eyes till i realized “wait a minute, i don’t need to find my glasses… i can see!” hahaha. lovely to see your take on the challenge, and thanks for passing by my blog and taking the time to leave a comment too. 🙂

    • Thanks for your comments. Congratulations on the successful surgical procedure. I’ve never thought about having the surgery. I’ve grown accustomed to my face with eye glasses; they act as jewelry for my face. I’ve got several pairs and I change them based on my style and mood. 🙂

  30. Nice, especially the picture with the flowers and bee 🙂

    • Hi SS,

      Thanks for taking a look at my entry.

      I like viewing all the many interpretations the photo challenge inspires. I’ll be sure to visit your site again.
