I deliberately blurred this photograph to convey a sense of motion. Either that or I’m channeling my inner Daido Moriyama. At least that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

The reality is of course, that I was trying to take a picture of a deer lying peacefully under a bush. It then took off and, not anticipating this, I didn’t react quickly enough to set a shutter speed fast enough to freeze the motion.

Still, there’s something about it I like and the blur does to a certain extent convey the deer’s motion.
