Sure, I know that I sometimes come up with a gem or two with my photography, but that's mostly because I take so many photos. And when I think about it, I have gathered some good experience over these past couple of years while doing it. I guess I'm not too bad at all.
But my photography is still a lot of happy accidents, with a little bit of skill thrown in. The picture at the top, for instance, was never intended for anyone's eyes but mine. I take a picture of that sign and benches every time I go to that park. I do it only to mark my place. I don't really even pay much attention when I get it. But why am I showing it to you then?
It worked pretty well most of the time, but not every time. It was snowing much harder than you see in this last picture. As it turns out, the first picture, my place marker, shows the snowstorm better than any picture I purposely took for you. That's what I call a happy accident.
Tell me what kind of happy accidents you have had. Have you ever been looking through your pictures at home and discovered something much better than you intended? Has something happened that didn't even involve photography? Tell me about it. I'm sure everyone else who visits here might be interested as well.
I'll see you in the comments section.
