Notes to this poem…

If the auto focus square isn’t where you want it to be, or where it should be, put your finger on it and drag it to where it should be for a manual adjustment.

Someone was taking a wide frame picture of the skyline where the skyline was below the middle of the picture. The auto focus seemed to have zoned in to the sky, not the skyline. Seeing that, her friend put her finger on the square, moved it down to the city and told her friend to let it refocus before taking the picture.


The F-series poems are part of a collection composed on my ferry rides across Halifax Harbour when the buses aren’t crossing the MacDonald bridge due to the Big Lift bridge redecking. This should keep happening until at least December 2016.
