Weekly Photo Challenge: Unfocused
This week’s Photo Challenge is “Unfocused,” which is a clever tease of a topic, if you ask me. Surprisingly, I did not have a huge assortment of unfocused photos from which to choose. (However, if the topic had been, “Marred by a Blur in the Center due to a Damaged Lens,” I would have had quite an array of options–all, unfortunately, taken in Paris.)
Then I considered the “spirit of the challenge,” which I interpreted to mean a photo that is not sharp and clear, but that revives fond memories, just the same. And I came across this one:
This is the path that my twins and I traveled daily (via foot or bicycle) en route to their German kindergarten. The children in this photo are all moving eagerly towards their Kindergartenfest. This is the only photograph that I have of that path, and although it is Unfocused, it brings back very pleasant memories of our daily trips along that wide, wood-flanked field, and I am truly grateful to have it.
