#4 Bournemouth Blur

A fairground ride in Bournemouth, England.

I have a number of ‘play’ lenses which are fun to use and produce interesting (if a little unpredictable) results.  One of those lenses is called a Lensbaby and is completely manual – no electronics at all.  I found myself in Bournemouth with it and decided I should try out a night shot.  One of the brightest things was a local fairground ride so I aimed at that, pushing and pulling the plastic lens to get focus.  Try as I might I was unable to get a well focused shot.  I had fun trying though and actually liked the results – they give a sense of movement that can never be obtained from a sharp well focussed shot.  I went home that day satisfied with the results.
