Blur is Beautiful : Part 1

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Haven’t you heard blur is beautiful? They why did you delete that blurred Β picture last time??! πŸ˜‰ I know you did! πŸ˜€

At times I too delete them, But after realising blur can be beautiful, I think before deleting a picture. I rarely delete a picture by the way. Somehow I don’t feel like deleting any of my pictures and my laptop is suffering because of that habit. πŸ˜‰

So this is a humble attempt to prove that blur can be beautiful.

This picture was taken while travelling. The blur is caused by the movement of the vehicle and a slower shutter speed.

I wish I was good atΒ  editing. If I knew how to use Photoshop or any other pro-editing software probably I can edit it a bit and make it look like an abstract painting πŸ˜‰

I guess, it’s because I am incompetent in editing, I kind of dislike heavily photoshoped, heavily edited pictures. I believe in pictures that are almost straight off from the camera, with a bit of brightness, contrast correction, ie pictures withΒ  minor editing.Β  For all the pictures uploaded here, I used picasa to add water mark or frame and for minor colour correction.

Well I am drifting away from the main topic. I was trying to say that blur is beautiful. If you accept the imperfections and try to find the beauty in that, everything will change.Β  At least you will have an impressive travel photography album.

So do you think blur is beautiful?

Do you want to share your blurry pictures? I wish WP comments could add pictures! You can leave the links in the comment Β or may be post it in my Facebook page.

i sometimes specifically take blur pictures because they make good patterned background images. And I believe there is such a thing as blur photography. When I took photography in college we did a blur of sorts assignment and I know that sometimes the best blurs happen at night when you are on the street watching the cars go by. But the really real blurred cannot see photo do get deleted. But I also like and have taken pictures where it’s dark around the edges and there’s something in the center – i.e. a nephew/niece or the world outside. Taking shots… Read more »

I love the idea of saving blurry photos. I guess I don’t normally keep them unless they have a sense of artistry to them. I have a great photo I took of my husband driving a car past me that is very blurry but it gives a sense of motion. I have another photo he took of me in Paris at night that I love because it makes it look noire. Great idea for a post! Great “blurry” photos! I would be honored if you would stop by and check me out at bulldogtravels if you have the time! Loading...


Sometimes blurry pictures are beautiful unless they’re too distorted. The photos still show the images so they are fine. Something I never thought about before.


This is a new concept for me. Find beauty in blur. Nice, it would make me look at my shots in a whole new way. Till now, I have instantly deleted the blurred ones.


I don’t tend to delete my blurry pictures as they have a unique beauty in my eyes. Your blurry pictures are perfect examples to represent what a unique beauty is πŸ˜‰


They do look like abstract painting !!!!! Alas,point and shoot here,so shutter speed etc etc went tangential above my head πŸ˜€


[…] Blur is Beautiful […]


These are interesting ! By the way did you use focal zoom (picassa) is some of them πŸ˜› ?


Sorry but they make me feel queasy
