Focus – WordPress Photo Challenge

I haven’t done a post like this in a long time, but saw the WordPress Photo Challenge, and decided to go for it, since I just took a qualifying photo I love.  Gary and I were at Ocean City yesterday, and I wanted to get a photo of the boardwalk and beach with the Ferris Wheel at the apex.  I only had my phone with me, and so couldn’t get a super clear picture of the scene as the distance was far too great.  After some editing, this is what I was able to come up with.


The blur, for me, emphasizes the spray off the ocean along with the intertwining shapes, rather than each detail.  It seems to freeze time, and therefore takes a place that is teeming with bustle, and quiets it down to a moment I’d love to remember.
