Don’t Fix Blurry Photo Mistakes


There is advice for altering pictures everywhere, tips for lighting and proper framing. This morning I was reminded of the beauty of imperfection. A hyacinth in an old pitcher naturally framed by the morning sunlight. I snapped a few shots, debating if it was worth the time to make a “perfect” shot.  May I suggest that is already is? Sometimes life is a little blurry, the sun is too bright in our eyes. With a different perspective, perhaps a few steps back, we can see that in the lack of focus there is still beauty to be found.

Do you toss out the bad shots? Would you consider keeping them as reminders of true moments?
