Emotional Richness of Blur

There's something engaging about blur. Ultra sharp photos seem to elicit a sense of "wow", an appreciation of technical achievement. Blurry photos hit you in the gut, down in the emotional centre. They recall fragments of dreams grasped on the edge of waking. It's that reaction I'm chasing, playing with different tools to achieve images that speak to me, and I hope speak to others. I see the landscape as a playground for imagination, and that's how I want to represent the landscape. As a cherished experience, rather than a postcard moment.
