the journey of a budding author

Weekly photo challenge: Blur


At a charity event a few years ago, I saw something I had never seen before! A fire eater. I was fascinated at his dash and daring and naturally took lots of photos! At first, however I was quite disappointed about the quality of the pics. My settings were off for both the lack of light and the movement. However, the more I examined them, the more I realised that it was precisely that blurred quality that gave the photos a sense of movement and drama.

I have always been surrounded by books. My parents had books, books and more books. I haunted the library as a child and when I grew up I worked in books shops. When I had children and they went to school I ran the school library. And my husband keeps on telling me there are too many books in the house. They somehow seem to pile up on every available surface almost of their own volition. I fight back and donate mounds of them to the local library but somehow it is a losing battle. I just find more taking their place! For the last eight years or so I have been wrestling with writing a novel and what a fierce tussle it is. I am about to publish this magnum opus in a few weeks time. I feel as I did when I gave birth to my children; nervous but excited!

  1. I have seen quite a few people sharing pictures with fire. These look great and fire is a really good subject for blurring as it has an effect of turning into liquid. .

  2. I like the first one the best.Blurred and full of drama. šŸ™‚
