Weekly Photo Challenge: UNFOCUSED
If there’s one thing I know it’s that when you’re taking pictures of kids you know half of your photos will end up being out of focus. I have four nieces under the age of seven and trying to get them to stay still for a photo is a challenge. The good thing about being digital is that you can take as many photos as possible without the risk of going bankrupt with film and processing costs.
This photo was taken in a small fishing village in Busuanga, Palawan. “The Chef” and I were walking around when I spotted this little boy behind a bamboo fence. I knew I had a short time frame before he would go back into his house so I rushed to take a picture and this is the result – an UNFOCUSED photo.
What an awesome photo for the theme! Great perspective 🙂
I enjoy images like this. Reminds me of the fun and simply rural country life. I agree that kids move to fast for the camera to capture. Recently my iPhone has this rapid burst option and it works great. Thanks for sharing your Palawan adventures. The more I read your posts, the more I’m convince to see this place on my next visit.Thanks….

Although the child is out of focus and you know that he was the main subject for your photo, I think this works well as one that could be used for other subjects. When I first saw it I thought of ” imprisoned by poverty”.
That’s an interesting point of view. I view it as “the simple life” but I guess the simple life can also mean no choice.
Nice photo – I the slightly out of focus nature of it adds to the charm.
Thanks! Like most people I usually delete out-of-focus photos but this one I did keep. I never thought I’d be using it.
