Blur Past The Window

She Was Just a Blur Past The Window

Women walking by in a blur.

Photos like this are best left to one’s imagination in their intent and interpretation. I’ll post why I took this photo just because I don’t like that line of thought with art.

This door is close to my desk. I watch people walk by it all day long, but I never really see them. I only catch the blurs as they pass. There’s no detail, just an evenly partitioned blur. I’m left to guess who passed by the general blur I catch. This one, younger female. If they were slower, probably older. Shorter, but faster, a young person. You get the idea.

So I set the camera to kind of catch what I see in my minds eye. I played with the shutter speed and aperture to get the blur about right. You can’t be taught what those settings should be. It takes practice and the only way to get the practice is to take photos daily.
