Lens Artists Challenge #103: Surprise
I am often surprised when I transfer the photos from my camera card to my laptop. The images I remember from clicking away do not always coincide with the actual results. Sometimes this is disappointing, but often I am pleasantly surprised…sort of like that excitement on Christmas morning as a child. Or opening the mystery treasure box with a special key in the gift shop at a local restaurant after dinner.
When I took the following photo, I focused on the lamp’s reflection in the window, but the resulting image morphed into the trees instead.
I actually like this one better than what I originally had in mind.
Then there was the rain pounding on our living room windows early one evening last week.
I thought I was standing far enough to the side to avoid my own reflection. In the camera’s viewfinder it looked like I was. However…
I had to look twice, but…there it was. Do you see it?
And last but not least…
During a quick dash down the frozen food aisle of a local grocery store, I glanced up…and ahead of me…on display at the end of an extensive beer display…
Since this discovery, I have seen the beer bear (now wearing a mask) also promoting chips, crackers and boxes of cookies.
Yogi would have been jealous.
