One of the photo forums I post too occasionally set a challenge recently – to take a photo purposely out of focus. With the constant striving for cut-glass sharpness in everyone’s photographs this is about as left field as one can get. But many delved right in with a host of images. Some worked, others didn’t, but at least they attempted something new and different.

Thus the Sunday Snap Shot image this week is my effort at Out of Focus. A wine triptych combining a wine glass, a corkscrew and a wine bottle…
