Another technique I experimented with early in my photographic life was blur. I am not sure if the spider in this photo is actually out of focus or if it is blurry because of the long exposure in low light conditions. Either way, I like the way it looks. My wife would say it is creepy, but I think creepy is often good. Peace, Happiness.
update – It turns out my wife thinks she may have taken this picture. It is sad to say, but I can’t really remember so she might be right. Anyway, I still like it, and you will see that I did embrace blur soon enough.
