Thematic Photographic # 183 Pairs

THIS IS A THEMATIC PHOTOGRAPHIC POST

           FOR "PAIRS"

                          Some pairs are planned

Like sharing a private toast between old friends.


While other pairs are unexpected.....



This pair of hands accidentally got in the middle of my picture taking.....funny why I even saved this photo.  Guess it came in handy by chance.

Another surprise was capturing this pair of strangers....
sitting directly behind me.


While I was sitting in this audience I wanted a view of the crowd that assembled.  So without turning around and merely holding my camera to the side I snapped this photo.....I think the woman on the left saw my camera pointed her way.... was she lost in thought or ?

So how about pairing something up too?

Too funny! Maybe she was dosing off for a cat-nap and your flash woke her up!!!

Jenny Woolf said...

Good idea! Thanks for visiting my blog, I like yours!

One red, one white: a pair with choices! I had to laugh at the look on that lady's face, she doesn't look too happy. Great set of pictures!

Steve Gravano said...

Wow the lady in brown doesn't look too pleased. She's thinking"Oh no, I'm gonna wind-up on someone's blog!"

I like the clapping hands. :)

Excellent pairs, I love that ladies look on her face, if looks could kill! lol The hands are another great shot of pairs. I posted on pairs a few days back, hmmm Valentine's day or somewhere in there I think. I love Carmi's themes, I'll have to check out what his next one is.

Cheers.

Karen S. said...

Steve- ..and yes she'd be right!

Karen S. said...

Cloudia, yeah, his hands surely took over my shot!

Karen S. said...

Laura K. I did promise Carmi a pair of posts! ..and just got it in before the weekend takes over!

Little Nell said...

Sneaky shots are often the best - you certainly caught that lady off guard! lovely pair of clapping hands too.

Bob Scotney said...

I have to hand it to for these pairs; hands are needed to raise the glasses but beware if the lady in brown raises her hands.

Karen S. said...

Bob- You are so right! Hopefully she remains a mystery to me!!!!

Aeria said...

A great set of pairs- fun!

I have photos like this with the random hand or head that was captured, I hadn't imagined that they would be useful in a fun way!

Carmi said...

I'm glad you kept that picture. In the age of digital, so many of us might have simply deleted it as a "wrecked" shot. Instead, you found a way to tell the alternate story in the alternate, unplanned shot.

And the look on that lady's face is classic. Would love to see her reaction if she found it on your blog :)

Karen S. said...

Carmi, It's always a happy moment when you stop by! Thanks...and yes I did think to myself...what if she is a fellow blogger... so far so good! ;)
