Focus is generally the central point of attention and activity. For photographers, it’s all the more important to keep the focus on a specific subject so that their photographs are able to tell their stories.
It had been a long and dull winter with a lot many snowstorms day in and day out. He was a perspicacious individual who always liked to be engaged in something or the other. For someone as professionally inclined as him, he had to find unorthodox ways to keep himself occupied.
And so at the first instance of summer, he took out his cycle. While he initially thought of the empty roads, he knew that cycling by the sea hearing the waves hit the shore felt blissful.
But as the rains came suddenly, he ran for cover under the gate.
It came as no surprise to anyone when she entered the shop and found it inhabited by fluffy cuddly creatures. She had always seen a lot of people bringing their pets or kids coming to the shop to play with them time and time again. In presence of these creatures, the kids seemed full of verve. On full moon nights, the shop used to organize pet friendly events for people to play and bond with these creatures. Their aim was to move thoughts of animal lovers away from the froth in the name of animal protection by other groups. Though the shop’s owner knew that his shop was in imminent danger from these groups, it didn’t stop him one bit. He was more than happy working in the shadows of others to do his bit in taking care of these creatures.
Summer was at its
peak though without power, he

These are desperate times for economies around the world. Hikes of all kinds whether its in utility rates, ticket rates, hotel rates, prices in retail and more maybe required to prevent a number of organizations and countries going bust. But on the other hand, hikes will discourage people even further as there are millions who have lost jobs.
The most important thing for almost anyone is to ensure that they are able to put food on the table. All the other luxuries may have taken a backseat for the foreseeable future. Life has become all the more intense and it is a far cry from the fantabulous days before the pandemic when money hunters didn’t need to do much at all as everything seemed hunky dory. The struggle for survival is on as the pandemic has given people a mirror on their actions from the past.
From spring to summer,
the pandemic left millions
struggling for it all
The yacht was fully
equipped with all things needed for
a lovely stay
There were two rooms, an
area to relax and the
deck seats to look out
As they began their
journey, they could feel the cool
winds caress their faces
It was summer but
the sun felt good on the skin
after the winter
By the time they reached
the island, they were fresh and
raring to go out

The skies were blue
And the grass was green,
The birds were chirping away
Amidst bright sunshine,
This was the time for getting some tan
Under the warm summer sun,
Sunny cloudless days followed by
Cool and breezy nights,
This was the perfect summer.

She was tired seeing his cavalier attitude to life. All through the summer, she tried her best to make him understand the need to balance everything. But instead he could only assume that she didn’t care to see him happy until one day when she decided that she couldn’t take it anymore. But by then he knew that it was too late to apologize.
