Accidental shootings

These are three shots that were not meant to be. 

I was taking photographs with my new macro lens on a sunny afternoon in the park. My camera was anything but ready to take a picture in a spot where there was plenty of dappled light, but the shutter was released in a moment of clumsiness.

A multi-coloured, out of focus swirl was the result. But I didn’t delete. I liked the unintended effect and repeated with a slightly different exposure. And again.

Being a fan of experimenting with digital art, I edited the second shot in monochrome and inverted the colours of the third. Maybe it’s criminal to discard shots, however accidental. Do you agree?…
