oof ftd stp

Rapidan river fog

Wednesday I was making fun of OOF, out of focus. But truly, the rule of photography is there are no rules.
There is no rule but one.
Take off the lens-cap.
Fog is akin to OOF, fog lowers contrast, blurs detail and in so doing reveals a larger truth, the role of distance. Fog reveals what is near and what is far.
If an image has appeal when blurred its design elements are good.

When I squint until I can barely see the hurricane's sequelae an essential truth looms. Everyone screwed the pooch.

Belated thanks to Chad Dotson, Virginia's elected blogger, for hosting the first Virginia Blog Carnival!
