Thematic Photographic- blur

This week Carmi at Written Inc had the theme of blur for his Thematic Photographic. Now this is my kind of theme. With two kids under five, 75% of my shots are blurry! I even have a set in my Flickr called "Learning to love the blur".

This one of Livi was taken during her second haircut. The first one was almost 18 months ago! But the words Livi and haircut just scream blur. I took her when I thought she could be fairly still. The stylist was very patient with her, she even let her hold the dryer a bit. But yeah, Livi and blur go hand in hand!
Soccer lends itself to some great blur. In this shot of Will can you read his lips?? He is saying, "SCORE!"....With one game left, he is finally getting the hang of it. Oh well, I do think soccer will be in our future for many many years!
Loved this photo if only he could have one called "over exposed"!

I've got enough blown highlights in my archives that "overexposed" may yet show up as a future theme! Thanks for the suggestion!

"Did you use a tripod for that???"

Actually, no. I was taking the Metro into town with my aunt and uncle. They "get" my whole photo-addiction thing, so they laughed when I leaned into the wall and shot down the platform. I jammed myself into a book as solidly as I could and then held it as steadily as possible. I shot a bunch, then picked the sharpest one.

I love these...two totally different scenarios with totally different feels.

Livi has such pretty hair. I know where she gets it from!

I love the expression on Will's face. :)
