Rubbish photos

I've got a thing about bad photos.

I've discovered that, despite my best efforts, not every photo I take turns out anything like I had hope it would. Last Wednesday evening was a case in point and pretty much every photo was an unmitigated disaster. However, for some reason, I still like some of them. Perhaps it's because...uncluttered with detail and out of focus they just somehow give a sense or 'feel' of what it was like to be there?

Anyway, here's us heading south away from the Jurassic coast towards France (only temporarily).

And I liked this one too because of the way that if gives the impression that the cabin is somehow a warm and cosy place to be...

Switch on 'auto-ISO' on your camera.

They look good anyway ...

Too warm and too cosy if you ask me.

I'd switched it off just to see what happened!

Speaking as someone who didn't spend the night in the wheelhouse you're dead right Steve...far too warm and cosy!

I have the same sense of frustration regularly with my photography. However, I suppose because of the context, I rarely get the consolation ones like those you have included there.

Hope you and the family are well.

I like these too. Its not easy taking picture on a boat, let alone in the dark. They do give an impression of action.

I think they convey the movement and feeling of being there. I feel a bit dizzy anyway, today, so I almost feel a bit sea-sick looking at them!
