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

Anderson Lake

Anderson Lake

Anderson Lake is a State Park on the Quimper Peninsula south of Port Townsend. During the winter the park is closed, but you can park at the gate and hike the trails. We took advantage of a break in the moving in chores and went for a walk in our new neighborhood. Very pleasant and the weather cleared and gave us some dramatic views.

Camera: Nikon D850
Lens: Nikon 24-85mm set at 24mm
ISO 1250    1/800 sec   f/14
