I've Been Pushed - R19
christopher.cannon (www.flickr.com/photos/christopher_cannon/) gave me a challenge that really had me thinking:
"Take a photo that has the main subject out of focus. The entire photo can be out of focus, or it can just be the main subject. The subject matter can be anything you choose, but try not to use any photo processing to blur the image"
- so I started to 'play' with focus and dof using my mobile (cell) phone as the subject. I was really suprised to see the reflection of the net curtains in the room we were staying in suddenly appear in the phone! I'm not sure if this meets with your original idea Chris (I'm new to this), but I am hoping to get another couple of goes before the deadline - and maybe try your more challenging (for me) 2nd idea too!
