When I read this week’s photo challenge–find beauty in a blur–I had to laugh because I’ve taken more than a few that qualify, just not with intent.
The pic below, however, made for tomorrow’s newspaper column on upcoming garden tours, focuses on the fountain and puts the house in a blur. Why? The curbside feature is not only eye-catching, it’s also the element in the landscape that announces, loud and clear, there’s something special going on.
To see where others found beauty, visit the weekly photo challenge at the Daily Post.
