Beauty in Blur

4

It is usual that most photographers like their photos sharp and crisp, in full focus of what the subject is. But then, we also have that art of blurring things and it makes photographs as beautiful as those sharp and crisp ones.

That’s why this week, we in the Community decided to choose 50 wonderful bokeh Lomographs! It sure was a tough one since not all Lomographers enjoy the art of blur but we accepted the challenge to show you how lovely it could be!

So sit down and click that pointer to this week’s Selection! They all may be blurred at some points but do not miss it’s beauty!

Happy Holidays, everyone!
