Default How to correct blurry images?

Shapes aren't coming into focus on the images I'm attempting to capture. Could someone tell me how to correct this? All advice is welcome! Apologies if this question seems dumb, I'm new to posting on forums.

Can you tell us what camera you have?

Can you post a photo that demonstrates the problem you're having?

Blurry images can be caused by camera shake, movement of the subject, the camera not focusing correctly, or just plain dirty lens.
Most cameras have an indication of focus lock, such as a light or sound, and some will not take the picture without it. Others will take the shot if you continue pressing the shutter button without waiting for a focus lock.
If you are taking pictures indoors, the culprit is often camera shake due to low shutter speeds. There should be an indication in the viewfinder or LCD, usually showing a hand.
A look at one of the problem pictures would help immensely in diagnosing the trouble.

Thank you for the advice! But so far, it does not seem to be caused by the state of lens cleanliness. The image appears crisp when I look at it through a lens, but upon view without the lens it is blurred.

I have attached some example images to this reply.

It appears that the camera focuses correctly for the viewfinder but not for the image sensor.

Can you tell us which camera you are using to capture these Images?

Yes, knowing the camera would help.
For example: if you were using a DSLR in manual mode, and had the viewfinder diopter adjustment set incorrectly, you could get this effect. The blurriness could also be caused by the camera or lens being set for macro focus.
If the Exif data were intact, it would be possible for us to see the information on camera settings.
