Blurry Days

There are days which are blurry, out of focus. They lack purpose, or I run away from it. My study schedule is abandoned, I stay home and feel as put together as a ball of fluff. Days like these are just one of the days I turn to my pictures.

This children’s park in the heart of the city was recently done up, we occasionally discuss readings in here and I try to remember my camera.
I love Ixora, and most definitely have not captured their beauty in this overexposed, unfocused picture. I have nicer ones, but they are just not for today.
Yes, that’s more Ixora in the water. No, once again I have failed to capture them in their glory. But this is also at the park
Butterflies are usually just a blur in the corner of my eye. Although it wasn’t what I was trying to capture, the Ixora is in focus here – for those I irritated with blurry red smudges in the other pictures
Glorious Trees #1 I don’t know what they’re called, or why they’re in the middle of tea plantations (prevent erosion? who knows), but they are weirdly blurry and wild looking and I love them, so you may look at three pictures of the trees because I could not choose one.
Glorious Trees #2
Glorious Trees #3 I Feel I like this one the best, with the other two tying in second. The trees look so HERE, and almost defiant. Don’t tell me it doesn’t make sense.


I’m now feeling a bit more put together. This is the first post on my blog, and a rather odd post to start with. I feel like I’m setting my standards low – with unfocused, blurry pictures that have no narrative cohesion – to kind of make that okay. The main reason for starting my blog is because I love photography, I love my pictures and find a strange comfort in them, but I didn’t have a medium I enjoyed sharing them on. I started with instagram, and while I still do post there I don’t enjoy it. My instagram is full of people I know and sharing my pictures there gets restrictive and a bit like throwing a baby to the wolves. The anonymity of strangers is infinitely better.
