The Blur

Amsterdam, January 2014

It’s a lively nighttime scene: tour boats, buildings, street lamps, all brightly lit; the water reflecting their cheerful glow. And yet, while I took this photo, the thought running through my mind was: do tears freeze in winter?

I like to think the blur of the photo is the camera lens sympathizing with the blur in the photographer’s eyes, but the truth is a bit more mundane: poor focus. Ah, well. Life goes on.
