Beautiful Mistakes: Camera Shake

Challenge #26 in the Ways of Seeing series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished

Whether deliberately or accidentally, camera shake can create images that capture an altogether different feeling. Show us an example of an image where an unsteady hand created a better image.
