Here is a collection of unintentional blurs that I find too interesting to delete. Best to gather them together like this and pretend to be an artist.

But first, look what a wonderful video Sandy put together of the early years of her, Amanda and me. Find it in her today’s post. There will be others. Thank you most kindly, Sandy!

And now I could also lie and call these intentional but who am I kidding? Still, if art is something that you cannot repeat, this definitely is. I was inspired by Bushboy’s continuous output of this kind, such as the first and last photo in this post, and Snow Melts Somewhere who might succeed in getting me a museum placement for these. 😉

The blurs are of two kinds: moments when my point-and-shoot refused to auto focus… Hm. There is only this kind. What can I say. I live fast.

A Slovenian in Italy for love. Blogger, photographer, translator and would-be writer who would be a writer if she wrote. Plus reluctant but emerging poet. Beware.

  1. I love love love this post. Some are astonishing, others I had a good laugh – especially at shape shifting and protest poetry reading couple. My favourite photo is the bus shelter.
    Thanks for the shout out as well Manja 🙂 🙂

  2. “Pending” is also my favourite of the group, and I do love the wife in Protest Poetry. What a wonderful collection of blurs. I wouldn’t have guessed I would appreciate it so much. I like how you say if you wanted to do it again, you wouldn’t know how. ha!! Sometimes my camera work is the same.

    1. Thank you, Crystal! I’m glad you say this. This “blurs” folder started to grow spontaneously but then I always thought about before deleting a photo – does it have any interest? So these were proclaimed save-worthy. And I’m glad I saved them.

  3. I love the blurry shots, Manja, quite painterly. You definitely have an artist’s eye. You frame a shot effortlessly. And it’s a interesting idea too that one’s life can somewhat pass in a blur if you forget to cherish those worthwhile moments ☀️☀️

  4. Those are cool blurs! It’s hard to do Intentional Camera Movement for me. I will spend so much time trying to do it and end up deleting all but one or two images. I know someone who can do it any time she wants and it comes out really cool every time!
