Okay, dear bloggers, I get it. You do not come here to do math equations (2 previous posts ago). You come to blogland to enjoy photographs, appreciate a new painting, revel in a poem, enjoy a story or a rant, or take a little peek into the life of someone else. So I will not have the math post up as the first post you encounter here today. You can scroll down to it if you have a mind to . . . Instead, here are a few failed photographs from my previous Sony Cybershot camera. Apparently these are not errors of the camera, but errors of the photographer who has not tweaked the settings to let in enough light. These type of shots have a name! They are known as "smear phenomenon". Well - I think the smears are exquisite and have kept them on my computer. Not quite sure how I will use them creatively - but there is no rush.
So what do you think of these "smear phenomenon" pics? The intriguing thing is I would not know how to purposefully produce these. They are a momentary, "freak" accident that can never be captured again. Come to think of it that is true for most photographs - and, more importantly, for life. Here's to our "captures" - be they feelings, connections, moments, camera shots, . . . Perhaps that is why we so treasure our memories. They are a way to re-capture a moment in time and savour it anew. In the meantime, savour these colourful accidents.
