Not all blurry photographs, even if unintended, are eligible for the trash can. They actually look beautiful sometimes! This one, for instance —

Diya, blurred

I’d been aiming for this lamp, adjusting my settings, when ‘click!’ I pressed the shutter button without thinking. Needless to say, I was happy when I saw the result of this accident. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I see it as an abstract representation of the Diwali festival — the flame, its reflection, the vague outline of the earthen lamp in the background…

I now try unfocused clicks more often. (Although what comes out of it isn’t always great.) That just goes to show that there is always some takeaway from any incident, doesn’t it?

    • That’s a good eye you’ve got there! ๐Ÿ™‚ No, there was no glass, but there was a lot of dust (and other pollutants) in the air that evening due to fireworks. I think the camera caught some of that.
