Fortuitous Accident

Fortuitous Accident

I really like it when you screw up and it turns out to be fortuitous.

I was in a little hurry and got the photo paper in the printer upside down. When it came out of the printer, I knew immediately what I had done, but my response was very positive towards the resulting image. The problem with this as a regular process to create images is that the ink doesn’t dry for weeks and weeks. I finally had it dry enough so it wouldn’t smudge too much … but still had to put it inside a plastic sleeve in order to keep the ink from covering the scanner glass.

The original image was posted on a page here.

Camera: well, that’s a good question… um, a flat bed scanner
