I never knew! Thank you for opening my eyes to the blur.

The blur of the eyeglasses is particularly nice. I often take off my glasses (when not wearing my contacts) to see the world this way.

Alicia said...

LOOOVE the out-of-focus photos!!!! and i agree with beth about the bokeh on the last one!! i need to get some sparkles in some of my photos for the series! i love the middle photo... if you stare at it long enough it doesn't look like what it is, instead like a carefully planned line painted by an artist! *thanks for the link too :)

Very beautiful blur! I love the prismatic bokeh in the last image.

kath said...

I recognize the blur without the glasses, it is an image that tells the story ...

Kimmie said...

Yes - I embrace the blur :)
When I have my glasses off - my house suddenly looks very very clean :)

Jac said...

Claire said...

was about to say that it reminds me of g's post and then you said it : )

the blur just adds something, doesn't it?

joyce said...

I see now on the sidebar how you picked your name...good one!!
The blurs make me squint!! I like the sparkles too:)

Prospero said...

Very interesting. I like the eyeglasses best, but then again, the first shot really works, too.

susanna said...

Yes, it's interesting the shapes that blurred photos can make, isn't it?

beth said...

that could be a photo/flickr group...
embrace the blur baby...embrace it !

gnubee said...

We must have been thinking the same thing today. Yes, I say, embrace the blur. See... it is beautiful :)

sherri said...

Lovely images. I particularly like the bottom one.

Joan Elizabeth said...

I quite like the top shot but am not entirely sure the blur is worth embracing broadly.

Liss said...

I think you have to be really creative to pull off "Blur" photos. To make the blur look like you meant it to be there rather than the blur looking like a mistake isn't easy.

love these images ELK!

patty said...

i cant tell you how i think this will change things for me! too often, i just delete the blurry ones, but the way you've presented it here, it invites intrigue... don't know if i like the glasses or the locket best, but they're all great... thanks for this. :)

Christina said...

Relyn said...
