Dude, you need need new glasses

Laguna Beach, California
Lensbaby Original, Canon 350D

Maybe, I do need new glasses but this picture was intentionally captured blurred.  I know most people will not get it.  I have some decent lenses that can take super crisp images... so why would I deliberately shoot blurred?  It's not that I'm not interested in getting sharp focus.  There is a place for those images.  But while most people are always gravitating towards sharp images, there is something about blurry images that seem to provide a certain feel... almost like a dream or a memory.  It seems to take us back just as we remember it.
