Beautiful Mistakes: Camera Shake

Challenge #26 in the Ways of Seeing series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
Generally, people feel that the camera should be steady when shooting, thus the proliferation of tripods and image stabilized lenses and bodies. 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.
