'O' is for Out-of-focus / Orange (abc Wednesday)

An old '60s car wash at the bottom of the hill, with only the exterior walls remaining, transforms seasonally into a Pumpkin Patch or a Christmas Tree lot. The fuzzy shot makes the place look more interesting than it actually is.
'Tis the color of this season. Cana lily adorning the front yard on Via Rincon.
Thank you Mrs. Nesbitt for ABC Wednesday.

Did you plan the out-of-focus shot, or was it improv? Cheeky, either way!

You mentioned on my blog that you remembered the crocuses on Rigi so I thought I would point you to a scene from my blog from that area:

Good morning! Out of focus, great idea for O and it's all so Orange...
Glad to meet another Southern Californian or as I fondly call this area "Northern Mexico" Have a wonderful day. I'm glad it's gotten cooler around here.

The Cana is called Tropica. As is my way, it died under my care. I love orange (it's the new red).

I drive by that car wash all the time. Somehow you made it seem less of an eyesore with just a little blur. Excellent!

As an artistic preference for me, I really LOVE that out of focus shot! You could sell that one. Orange is a wonderful color to photograph. Well done.
