I guess the (not really) deaf golfer can ...

On the practice putting green at Tilden Regional Park, using the timer and mini-tripod so I could frame and focus and then run around and make the shot. I little over-exposure was necessary to capture the motion blur.

Left image a self-portrait in macro mode, using the LCD screen reversed so I could see to frame the photo; just cropped a little from the right.

Center image with my ex-boss playing the shouter; used the tripod and timer to run around and play the other part. Cropped from the left to make a vertical out of a landscaped original.

All had "usual" processing, with Channel mixer to make gray, an overall curve, and a graduated curve on the two "people" shots to lighten up the darkest shadows and even out the lighting a bit.

An interesting combination of 3 seemingly unrelated photos.

Hmm. I would say golf but, the old man on the left doesn't seem to fit with that so I'm not sure. Maybe he's a golfer? I also thought Secret but I'm not sure about that either. I'm going with Golf

I appreciate the attempt to tell a story, but unfortunately I don't find any of the three images very interesting. :)

Hard of hearing? Uhh... no... I'm stumped.

Intrigued, though... Will come back and see what it is after the rollover.

See, hear and feel the putter, so - senses.

I see numerous other stories as well, so well done.
