Weekly Photo Challenge: Unfocused

This week the challenge was difficult for me in that I delete my photos when I see that they are out of focus. Normally I take a couple of shots of a scenario; and then keep the best. I did find a picture, though, that I took at my children’s school Winter concert last year. I decided to keep it because:

  1. It was the only shot I had taken of the programme
  2. The blurred aspect of the photo softened the subject a bit – a little in keeping with the theme of the evening.

Do you keep the out of focus pictures that you have taken?

      1. hehehe, I am very glad you think so Colline but I can promise you out of every 10 pics I take, I have at most 5 or 6 that’s unfocused most of the time, but thanks for the lovely compliment. You are way too kind. :)

  1. This picture has a fantasy-like quality that I like very much!
    I usually have many pictures that are out of focus or otherwise blurred, but I keep them. Sometimes it is because, like yours, it is the only photo I have of a particular subject. But also, I occasionally get some “artistic” effects using blurred photos.

  2. Hi,
    A great photo for the theme.
    Like you I usually delete mine out, with your photo it was a very good idea to keep it as a memory of the event.

    1. I find when the lighting is not bright, many of my photos have a hazy look to them. I guess I should really step away from the automatic settings on my camera

  3. If I got rid of the fuzzies and the duplicates, I’d have half the photos gone. Ha ha. I keep some of Boy that are out of focus because they are all I have. They bother me, but I hang on to them! I am glad to hear all these folks say they get fuzzy photos too. I thought I was the only one! Thanks for bringing up this subject! :-)

    1. Looking at the photos people put up on blogs, I thought that unfocused photos were not a part of their repertoire. As you say, at least now I know that I am not the only one who makes these mistakes :)

  4. Just like you, I usually delete the blurry ones and keep the best, more that my computer’s memory is getting full. And yes, the challenge was a bit hard for me. Love your version. Reminds me of the beautiful memories of Christmas. Thanks.
