Print of the Week

"The object of art is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of the same intensity.”
- Alberto Giacometti


This is another photo of the succulent flower, only deliberately out of focus, making it mostly abstract. (But at least not black and white!)

Normally I'm trying for the sharpest image I can get, but when I was shooting these flowers I noticed that it looked interesting when it was out of focus, so I shot a few images that way.

I can't decide if I think it's "good" or not. I like the colors, and the contrast, and the shapes, the vague suggestion of leaves and a flower. On the other hand, what's the value in a blurry picture of a flower?
