The picture I hauled out of the Recycle Bin for this challenge has a strange quality to it. Taken by me as driver of a moving car of this dam in the Free State, South Africa, it is out of focus both due to wrong setting and to nearby movement. However, it has (to me, anyway) an extraordinary tendency to ‘correct’ the eye in the way the Impressionist paintings do, so that after staring at it for a while it seems perfectly clear.

One might also say that at that moment my attention on my driving was unfocused – tut, tut!

    WEll, everything I look at is unfocussed at the moment. Hopefully after the eye ops, it will all come into focus. 😉
