Why and What Is That?

My wife hates this picture. I love it. I had it printed and on display for a while and got several comments from people on both sides of the fence about it.

You keep looking at it thinking it will come into focus because your mind knows what it is, but your eyes are complaining that the image never resolves itself.

I took this one morning when I was trying to clean dust spots off of my sensor. Never one to waste an image I downloaded the card to lightroom to see if there was anything usable in those random frames. This is what my mind came up with from an out of focus frame. Is it art or shite?

I would agree on loving this image! It is ART so the scientific aspect just got shot down the shite-er!

A photographer as delusional as I am. Woohoo! I learned from an older photographer friend to use what you have to work with. He hasn't been able to buy a new camera or lenses in many years due to family pressures and his lenses have become less sharp and reliable. He said that forced him to work in more abstract and artistic ways. What initially was limiting led to his new signature style.

Nothing to be sorry about. I like playing around creating different effects both in camera and in post. I find that I get bored with documentary style realistic photography and have to let my mind wander a bit.
