I often add grain because I like it; I like the nod to enlargements from film negatives like Kodak Tri-X. I like the concept of pointillism. The addition of visible grain separates a "photograph" from the easy and natural attempt see photographic work as a captured object. It makes an image more abstract, not referring directly to something or someone, i.e. the "nominal subject" as referred to sometimes by the painter, Charlie Hunter. Plus it looks nice. I use different techniques depending on the image. The motion blur in this image does the above, too.
