Challenge: Close Your Eyes (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: 2012 Challenge shots
Date: Mar 29, 2012

First of all -- I learned to hate this challenge very quickly, because my first thought was: "Close your eyes and I'll kiss you, tomorrow I'll miss you, remember I'll always be true..."

And I sang it all week!

And I'm still singing it!

We need another song challenge so I can get this out of my mind.

Oh wait, this wasn't a song challenge.

So, my husband took me to downtown colonial williamsburg and I held onto him and walked around with my eyes closed. I took 200 shots and they all stunk. So we gave up and started driving home. On the way home, I saw these beautiful flowers on the side of the road, my sweet husband turned around and then we realized that there was absolutely no place to pull off. So I opened my window, closed my eyes, and panned as we went by. And panned. And panned.

It's because I remembered some beautiful shots that someone did from a moving car, panning at trees. Does anyone remember who did these shots? I'd love to look at them again and try the technique some more. It was quite interesting!

And a posthumous nod! How cool is that!

Thanks for the wonderful comments. :)

This is such a happy image! I like the impressionistic look -- just the right amount of blur.

Darlin' i'll be true...
i like the feeling of motion here. it's like i'm speeding away somewhere, which is great because i'm at work and can't wait to be speeding away from here :D

Magical.
the grey in the middle is a bit annoying to the eye, but besides it, great blur and very interesting focus!

Quite painterly. I love the vibrant greens and yellows. Love your reference to the Beatle's lyrics too. 7
