2013 CM Blog Circle: August ~ Motion Blur

I’m participating in a blog circle with other Clickin Moms for 2013. August’s challenge was “Motion Blur” where we had  to show motion using either a long exposure or use a panning technique (which I have yet to master). I’ve had this vision in my head for a long time and this was a perfect challenge for me to attempt it.

We’ve been in this home for many years, nearly 14 years I think, and there have been times where we’ve felt a presence here. I don’t know if I believe in actual ghosts but there are things that are hard to explain… random noises, something missing, a sudden chill. This is me, a self-portrait, in an old gown, walking down the hallway to our bedroom. I wanted the woman to be blurred, in motion, as she walked away, with parts of her seeming transparent… leaving it up to you and your imagination to decide.
