Looking at life through a blurred lens











I hate it when you've taken what you thought was an amazing photo, then looked at it later and realised its blurry. But sometimes I think there's something really interesting about blurred images, an element of surrealism or ethereal-ness. Like the edges of time and reality are blurring, oops started to sound a bit too doctor who there (:




Incidentally though, did anyone see Torchwood last week? Amazing!




But back to the point, these are some pictures a friend (the very lovely flo again!) took of me, and the blur is on purpose. I think they look really good. I love the way the dress flows.

I've always loved blurs. Back when I lived in NYC, after university, my friend BK used to shoot me as his muse (pre blog, alas) and we'd do deliberate blur shots with slow film. I keep asking him to dig up those shots.
Now, with my own blog, my husband is often saying I shouldn't use a shot because it's blurry but to me it's not a flaw, it's art.

I love your blog, and am adding you to my blog roll. Thanks for adding me!
