Before changing subject, I’d like to share another of the through a dirty window on a moving train photographs that I took yesterday with my IPhone as Figure 1. This one shows a house and a red truck. I have to admit that I am, in general, not enamored of “the out-of-focus photograph.” But I do have to say that it does achieve three things. First, it creates a sense of the surreal. Second, and as a result, it makes the otherwise mundane interesting. You feel a sense of satisfaction at discerning what exactly you are looking at. And third, it creates a kind of dynamism, a sense of motion. You feel that if you blink your eyes or just swim to the surface there will be clarity again. Combined what happens is a very static composition, becomes filled at least with the expectation of motion.
