I Don't Want To Get Out The Car...

...It's Cold and Wet Out There!

When I arrived home after work this evening, it was cold… I didn't want to climb out of my car, so instead, I took photographs of the cars in the streets through the wet window. I loved how the effect turned out almost like a painting. I deliberately 'unfocused' the camera for this shot, so that the mind would focus instead, on the light and reflections, and hopefully the loneliness of the night. Has it worked?

It does look like a watercolor. I hadn't thought of doing the unfocused shot intentionally.

Yes, the unfocus enhances the rainy feeling. I have wanted to do that, but you did it really well.

This is fabulous Gail. I love the way you have focussed it. It turns it into a wonderful photo from something that would have been quite ordinary if focussed normally. The colours are perfect. It has inspired me to dig out an old B+W from Paris to post sometime this week. Fav
