everything has beauty

, but not everyone sees it ~ Confucius




This weeks inspiration is blur. Check out the gorgeous images Kristi selected.  Beautiful, so soft and dreamy.



Blur is a wonderful thing, I often shoot with a shallow depth of field and this can create a lovely soft blur.  Mostly by shooting with a shallow focus  (ie f number low as possible)  I am trying to eliminate clutter to make my subject the focus of the image.  Sometimes blur is just a happy accident for me xox

These images evoke memories of cherry picking when I was a little girl - and by that I don't mean selecting the best team members for my basketball team but harvesting little red jewels of deliciousness from cherry trees.

I love your photos. And isn't it the coolest thing when a mishap in a photo session turns out to be the queen of the bunch?!
