Having a subject that isn't in focus is normally an issue. Sometimes, though, it's exactly what's needed to make the photo just different enough to be noticed. I've been meaning to get a photo that would look good even though it isn't in focus. I think I succeeded.
I went out with the goal of getting some good bokeh. I did get some (look to the lights on the light posts) but it isn't the main subject. This just means you can look forward to a shot where the subject is out of focus lights.
