The Blur Before the Polar Vortex

Posted By Claudine Williams

I love intentionally blurred photographic images. I’ve never tried doing this myself until the day before the polar vortex hit us in NYC. This is by no means an award-winning photo – just an image captured while playing with manual focus trying to intentionally blur my view. The photo was taken on Greenwich near Harrison, looking South to the World Trade Center. The sun was creating a beautiful glow between the WTC and the adjacent building, drawing your eye in. The rest of the image would have been pretty flat. The blurred street and car lights add much needed visual interest.
