{#OurProject52} 17/52 Out of Focus

Another prompt that seems to be right on point with my life. Right now it seems that one area of my life has all of the clarity while a few of the others fall out of focus, and they continue to flip flop. Like can’t everything be in focus at one time?!

I suppose that is what makes life interesting! I have gained clarity…for now on a few changes I want to make here on the blog and starting May 1, I’m going back to sharing more of my life with you and taking the focus off blogging for business. It’s just all become a little impersonal for me and I started this blog for the community and that’s what I am going back to.

Anywho. I had to do a throwback Thursday for this post. I took this picture in February of 2013 and when I saw the prompt for this week, I knew this was the photo I would use. Often you capture images that just stick with you and this one did. I meant for this to be in focus and I’m not sure if I would love it the same had it been. Sometimes the best photos are the ones that technically should be on the cutting floor!


Tip: To purposefully get some elements of your photo out of focus one easy way is to manually adjust your focus. Take your camera off Auto Focus and do the work yourself to see what you can create.

Thank you to those that continue to hang in there. Drop in and out as you see fit, this is just a fun exercise in finding new friends and learning new tips! I’ll be around to visit everyone this weekend.

Be sure to go see what Lashawn has “out of focus” this week. Thanks for linking up!

    Love your blog Mimi, and can’t wait to read more, love how genuine you are. These pictures of your daughter, she is a such a beauty! I missed last week’s prompt, leave it to me to take a picture on a cloudy day! I hope I can hop back in this week.
    Sweet post and sweet little girl!

      Aww thanks Charlotte. I get caught up in the hype at times and have to remind myself that I do this for the love and sharing and anything that comes from that is a perk. I needed a wake up call!
