out of focus, motion blur "accidents"...lets see them

Hello everybody,

Ok, generally speaking, most of my photos are usually in focus and composed as I imagined (wanted) them to be, that said, I sometimes have the accidental out of focus shot, "weird" composed shot and/or motion blurred shot and for some strange reason, the photo stands out to me and I end up printing it and scanning it and for some reason, the more I look at it, I like it (is it art? ha!)....anyways.......I am curious, do any of you guys have out of focus or motion blurred shots that stand out to you....here are some examples of what I am talking about and that I happen to like......

Trastevere, Rome.....Leica m6ttl 50mm summilux vi tri-x



New Delhi, India.....Leica m6ttl 50mm summilux vi tri-x



New Delhi, India....Leica m6ttl 28mm elmarit v3 tri-x......
terrorist bombing



cheers, Michael

i like the effect of Michael's last one, perhaps because it reminds me of the famous pictures of D Day (1944) taken by Capa (those that weren't destroyed by Capa's assistant anyway). Sometimes, focus and pin-sharpness aren't the best...

A little bit of motion blur never hurt anyone.

100% accidental, thought I still had my lens set to f8 and a hyperfocal point...worked out probably better than if it were in focus... besides, I was seeing the game pretty much this way after a few trips to the beverage station

None of these were accidents, however.

Hello Jjbf, I was looking at your first photo and I can't help to think that it was taken in Paris at the San Michele metro stop on the left Bank, close to the Seine......am I right?
BTW, your second photo also looks like it was taken in that area....cheers, Michael

taken with a sonnar prototype that needed major calibration:

i got scared when the pigeons suddenly took flight:

my first shot with a r2a, cross processed velvia 50. i didn't realise that it's a 2s exposure..

taken a week ago w a lx3. i intended to freeze all motion but the blur before the sign makes this shot a lil more interesting:
