Day at the Park




Even through my sickly snuffles I was determined to enjoy the warm weather and use my film camera this weekend. The cold medicine must have made an impact because I photographed everything blurry - probably because that is how my head felt! But, is it wrong to love these blurry moments, maybe even intentionally create these blurred events?

These nontechnical photos still capture my emotions that day at the park. It was daylight savings...my head was a bit fuzzy...the park was a nice escape...and the time changed.

I also got a chance to work on an Unravelling assignment to photograph your reflection - check them out on Flickr.

Do you ever think blurry thoughts?

I also love the blurry photos. I've been working with the macro button lately trying to figure the whole blurry thing out.

Poor, fuzzy head!

your blurry pictures are just right. blur is not necessarily a bad thing, unless you're driving or operating some sort of machinery ;).

Hey Harriet said...

Wow your cold/flu has been sticking around for a long time! Time to kick it out the front door eh! I hear we're getting a 60F weekend up here in Portland. Perhaps another sunny weekend to look forward to!

I think the bluriness works. Lends a sense of movement to the images.

Hope you're feeling much better!

Victoria said...

I think they are extra wonderful as they not only capture the external of the day, but the internal as well. Hope you feel completely better very soon!

These are so great, Diana! Keep up the good work! :)

Courtney said...

I like the blurry aspect to them. And I do think blurry thoughts sometimes when I am super tired or sick.

abigail said...

I was on vacation once and it was sooo hot, like 110 ยบ, and humid that I got woosie and all my photos were crooked, like I'd taken them while drunk.
they are some of my favorite photos of that trip.

Hila said...

I hope you're feeling better Diana!

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

Film photos! Yay! I am so proud of you. :-) I think they look great. And as for thinking blurry...every day, lately, for me.
