Student photographer's analysis of the photo:

I think this picture is very interesting. I like how it looks. I took this picture at the store when we were on a field trip. I just took the picture, and I moved the camera by accident. So, the movement of the picture is kind of blurry. There are some Cokes, flowers, sunglasses, and wrapping paper. There's even some sunlight. I just like it a lot. Everything is just in another place and it moves suddenly. It's so cool. I feel good about this picture because it is a picture that came from me. I just took it just to have more pictures, but it turned out to be one of the best ones I took. It would be a good picture to make photo art.
