Whoosh

I was trying to make a "whoosh" with the camera, and I got this instead. It's more of a "whu-uhp!...phhh."

I'm fine with that. Often, when I set out to create something, I have to let go of the outcome.

Looks like panning with a sneeze. A wonderful effect, Petrea. Three cheers for happy accidents.

Whatever happened, it made an artful impression. I love the effect.

Letting go of the outcome, in a variety of contexts, could provide important life lessons for all of us. (I tend to wax philosophical these days.)

Philosophy for life. Panning with a sneeze. Just plain like. Artful impression.

I woke up with a headache and it's gone. How did you do that?

PIO, you make me think of the serenity prayer they say in AA and the other "anonymous" programs.

Looks like a whoosh to me. Either way, I appreciate the Saturday morning philosophical jolt.

You're right sometimes you just have to try something and then see what you get... what you got has an interesting ethereal feel...

I am a huge fan of the accidental photo and the motion for motion's sake shot. Bravo!

Petrea Burchard said...

I have a lot of accidents in my photo files. Maybe I'll post more. You probably shouldn't get me started.

Steven said...

I like it. It looks like an art piece.

Latino Heritage said...

Motion, yes! Thanks for sharing.

Margaret said...

Hey! I think this is really cool!

Petrea Burchard said...

....now where is that "accident" file...?

Ms M said...

Wonderful effect! It's fun to play and create! Often times I like my "accidental" photos than the ones I intended.

John Sandel said...

For this photo, an Agitation Prayer is more like it.
