    Sometimes a blur is intentional. Sometimes you miss focus. Sometimes your hand shakes or the object moves. Unwanted at first, but sometimes the results are good.

    This bird hopped away right when I was shooting him! Color of this photo is not really good and the bird is blur. But this is one of my favs! Pentax 135mm f3.5 on PM2.

    This one was semi-intentional, but I didn't intend for the depth of field to be quite so shallow. I quite liked the abstract result, though, and this photo actually won an honorable mention in a garden photography contest.

    Looking for a handout in the Grand Canyon. Taken with my GM1 and the 12-32 kit lens. He was really close to the lens and wasn't the least bit disturbed.

    Fantail, doesn't stay still for more than a second at a time. Complete blur as it launches off.

    This was an experiment from a few years ago. I intentionally mis-focused by setting to manual focus and randomly spun the focus ring, kind of a photo russian roulette. No one in my family liked it but I've kept it all the same.

    Neat idea!

    This one was intentional, but the only one that wasn't too-o-o-o blurry.
