Paula (Lost in Translation) has developed a liking for the unfocused in photography. I must confess that this is something that I didn’t like myself several years ago, but like her I have become attracted to blurred backgrounds, bokeh, tilt and shift experimentation and creating movement.
This was an accidental photo – I was going for the vibrancy of the artwork on the security shutters of this shop in Barcelona. A couple of years ago I would have binned this shot, but now I love the movement of the passers-by and especially the pink and blue suitcases that match colours in the painting. Hope you love them too!

It works particularly well against the bold colours!
I’m glad you didn’t bin it – it’s a great photo! I, too, have become a fan of blurry, unfocused photos over the last few years. 🙂
Very interesting play of colours and blurred effects!
Love the effect of these busy, blurred people against this background.
