Weekly photo challenge: blurred vision

¬†A throwaway shot, or purposefully unfocused? I took this photo last weekend at the Wedding Fair and had to retrieve it from my deleted album as I had dismissed it as too blurry.¬† The only editing I have done is to make it a¬†black and white shot and now there's something about it that grabs …
