I've been catching up on my blog reading and came across the Landscapist talking of hyper-reality - the over sharpened world of digital photography.
That gave me an idea for a something of an exercise in the opposite direction. At the weekend I went out to take photos that aren't sharp, in fact decidedly out of focus. I set up the camera to approximate the angle of view and focus point that I have with my glasses off. Something of an experiment in presenting the unassisted view. Just what could I see without the remarkable technology that are spectacles? As a side benefit, it helps me understand exactly how much detail I really do normally see and perhaps take for granted.
I'll be posting a few of the results over the next few days both here and on my photo of the day.
