Weekly Photo Challenge: Blur

blur

Most days it feels as if the world is whirling around me and I am standing still. In slow motion, I watch the colors blur; people and faces all become a massive wash.-Sarah Kay

For this weeks challenge, Blur I went back into a trip I took years earlier. This picture was taken when I visited Pompeii in Italy. On our tour we visited the local brothel that had images on the wall of different positions so that when costumers didn’t speak the language they could just point to what they wanted. Since Pompeii was a hub before it was destroyed by the volcanic eruption, having universal paintings for what exactly you wanted was crucial. It got rid of the language barrier in a sense. The downside of going inside the brothel was that the lighting was completely gone except for a few modern hanging features to make the paintings more visible. Because of this most of my shots were blurred but this one turned out blurred in a beautiful fashion. The edges seem smooth with the background slightly intact.
