Nice abstract sir. Looks like a blanket of some sort.
Larry Bliss: I am pleased by its ambiguity...
It does take some imagination to determine what this is... and I'm at a loss!
Larry Bliss: Grasses nearby, camera panning horizontally with a 2-sec shutter.
It reminds me of someone's hair we all know, Larry! grin
Larry Bliss: Oh dear...

Great abstract and I have to say that your cat really came close to the lens and was in a big hurry, Larry grin....
Larry Bliss: those cats... smile

A fine abstract. I was thinking hair, too - or it is fur?
Larry Bliss: Some sort of thick grass...

Soft to the touch and sight, Larry
Larry Bliss: I thought it was a nice departure...

Blur seems to equate to painterly.
Larry Bliss: Blurry painting!
looks like some sort of grass in the wind but I have a feeling it is actually a fabric
Larry Bliss: Your first guess is correct...

There was a time here on Shutterchance when a number of us did 'blurries'. The thing was not to pass off a bad focus as a blurry. Then these guys stopped posting, one after the other. This is a picture in the blurry genre by Mal Smart - one of his best. Treat yourself to a walk through his archives.

I have also posted moving grass seeds long ago. Whatever. The trick to me with blurries is that in a good one, you don't loose the subject, but sort of enhance the moment - the sample of Mal making the case.
Larry Bliss: I looked at his link--excellent work. It was a fascinating glimpse into SC's earlier history--45 comments!

Grey or gray hairs of an elder water fairy as I assume -an interesting photo!
Larry Bliss: Thank you, Philine...
Ginnie's comment made me laugh, Larry. I certainly hope that is not the case. I see a little red showing through on the left.
Larry Bliss: I would never get that close to the person in question.
I am thinking grasses.
Larry Bliss: You are correct...
Waving grasses, I assume, Larry.
