A Squirrel and Some Thoughts on Motion and Softness (Three Photographs)

If you have ever seen a squirrel eat a treat you know about the deliberation and speed with which the item is devoured. When we see photos of motor races we expect to see wheels turning, we want to see a sense of movement and without it the photo falls flat. Without everything going out of focus, a bit of blur, a bit of softness lends a sense of reality to movement. Stopping motion, to get the detail of an animal or flower is one thing, but a subtle sense of movement can also provide detail to the story line.
