This is my youngest child.

I took the shot last summer. When I looked at it for the first time on the computer, I was disappointed because of the blur.

But the photo has grown on me. It does a very good job of describing my youngest son. He is a constant blur of motion.

As my baby son leaves toddler hood behind, this photo becomes more precious. He was running as fast as he could to bring Mommy a flower he picked himself.

Blur is sometimes very effective in photography.

  1. A good way to appraise a photo that at first seemed technically disappointing. And these apparent let-downs can indeed enhance an image. I’m sure this will always be special.

I learned through trial and error as you did, that some of my better captured moments were those first knee jerk reactions to shots are the wrong ones. Glad you kept and published the shot.. It’s a good one..”
