Photographs that are out-of-focus aren't always a bad image.

Photograph of a rusty, old, dirty lantern.

This photograph features window reflection of a lantern and sky. Three panes of glass and frame add balance to a fuzzy, out-of-focus image.
Study of lanterns June, 2010.

  8. One never knows when they will need a lantern, but for the most part they sit around and look great like your photos.

  9. Hi Joyce,
    My Dad collected old lanterns like this. They still hang in my Mom's garage.
    I actually like the out of focus shots a lot especially with the focused shot in the center.
    Nice study!
