photoblog image Insecurity


Apologies, for I have not been able to update my photoblog recently. This isn't really because of lack of new material but more to do with the lack of time in sorting out the images.

This image was taken with the blur by mistake. I have another one that is a lot sharper however I kinda prefer this one. I think the message behind the photo is a lot stronger. What do you think?

Sorry I will not talk about the American elections, I'm a brit and I live in the UK, yes the worlds economy depends on the US economy, however I think that's also the reason that a lot of us are in the predicaments that we are in. We've become very vulnerable. It's time we made a change, let's learn to stand on our own feet.

more than insecurity, vulnerability, maybe?
Elections? No country can stand on its own nowadays, we all chained together. And it's much more than just economy.

Nice image. Blur can be a very good thing. Whether or not it is intentional smile

My best photos were mistakes. I call it my "subconcious" taking over.

I agree, the blur adds more depth to this kind of image. Perhaps you can post the sharp one as well, and we can vote on itsmile

P.S. Yes, the worlds economy depends on the US economy, but we are all inter-connected. Therefore, we all need each other. I think it may be too late at this point to stand on our own feet (in terms of the economy?)
Stand on your own?? United we stand divided we fall bro. it will be nice to see UK follow similar change in Brit leadership you know...although I dont see a simular change in leader structure happening over your end for a while.

By the way it is a nice image.

I think the soft focus adds to the sense of his vulnerability somehow. This is a lovely sensetive soulful shot
Hugely powerful ... richard
