You know that feeling of disorientation when first exploring a new place? The cacophony and unfamiliarity can make you feel #PPOutOfFocus. For this week’s challenge, we want you to capture that in the blur of motion, the bokeh of the near and far, as well as anything else your imagination can dream up.

Lending their perspectives are guest judges @foxsbackpack, @gabdetails & @insearchofperfect; so check their feeds for inspiration.

For @passionpassport‘s #PPOutOfFocus challenge // The Vatican is a beautiful and a chaotic place. When I want to be alone, I walk around the city to listen to the only music I love.
