Out of Focus – dark skies, flapping, and Mars

This week is a celebration of photos that represent focus.  I liked seeing the example of an out of focus picture that nevertheless communicates.  I must say I have a few photos that re less than sharp.  Okay, more than a few!  I do keep some of them because they are interesting in other ways.  They might make a good abstract background, or sometimes the blurriness helps tell the story.  Here are a few.

These quail are really in a flap!  The blur makes me think of how active they were.

This moon, though blurry, made a neat background for a poem about Halloween.

There’s something I really like about this one – blurred, it looks like the eye of a great beast, and has an interesting mood.

Although, to be fair, this is what it was supposed to look like!

This last image is probably the best out of focus picture I’ve ever taken.  Not only is it the shaky track created by my trying to take a picture of Mars at extreme zoom, but it starts to spell out my name!
