Blurry Pictures

Blur is this week’s theme with the DailyPost photo challenge and this time I must admit I felt rather spoilt for choice when it came to illustrate the challenge.

I’m used to taking pictures with a vintage 28mm 1962 Nikkor manual fixed lens and you may imagine that I’m rather often out of focus. In the above shot this is exactly what happened. I spotted a scene with that young kid coming towards me on his little bike and I took a reflex shot at close distance. There you go, I was out of focus again. I then came home and “developed” my pictures and as I was about to throw away the ones I didn’t like I found that one in the lot. Eventually I decided to keep it because, had I managed to produce a perfectly crisp photo, I don’t think it would have as successful as this shot. I think it conveys perfectly the feeling I wanted to capture of that scene on that warm Spring afternoon of last year.

Another idea of Blur as seen from the staircase of a block of council flats in the Bel Air area in Paris.
