Accident of timing. My husband popped up in the window right as I was snapping a picture of the cat. Thus creating the best Catbeard photo ever.

Saw what looked to be a pretty cool scene from my hotel one morning with fog and sunlight over a small bay.  Went to go capture it and see how it looked.  Camera was still in bracket mode from shooting HDR the night before.  Turns out, I liked the 2-stops overexposed better than the "correct" exposure of an otherwise boring scene.

I hadn't realized how slow the shutter had gotten when the band took the field. But I liked the sense of frenetic activity swirling around those who are still.

My wife says this looks like our pooch Radar ate her eyes and she thinks it's hilarious.

Raindrops on my window

Taken from the plane as I was leaving the island, I meant to capture the other side of Maho Beach.
Instead, my phone camera focused on the raindrops.

Dinner Plate Moon

I intended to focus on the moon, but got the branches instead.  I though the way the moon seemed to have a border around out this out of focus was kind of cool.

An attempt at home developed B&W slides.  The weird blackness is from where the bleach step didn't work quite right, and the color is from the coffee developer.

Protip: Don't use aperture priority at your partner's firebreathing show.  Even the fastest camera processors can't keep up with how quickly the light shifts.  The first half of the fireball will be grossly overexposed, and the latter half will be grossly under exposed.  That said, I love how the intensity of the over exposed fireball dominates the rest of the image.

We didn't go downtown to see the fireworks last 4th, we socially distanced at the marina on the boat. I snapped a few pics with the Android phone and they were predictably crap. Hey, what does night shot look like? This is how it came off the phone.

40ish-year-old Kodak Tri-X developed in Caffenol CM.  Maybe 5-6 frames had these spots, and I decided not to convert the scans to B&W.
Shot in an Olympus Pen F half-frame camera, so the grain's even more pronounced.

Last Saturday 5.06am. Decided to set out early with the dog and suddenly decided to 'shoot the moon' with my iPhone.  I don't always take pics in the dark but when I do, I accidentally catch a meteor.

I was aiming for the mating pondhawks in the background when the pondhawk in the foreground flew into the frame to say, "Oh hai guys, what's going on in here?" and stole the focus.

Blurry plane landing over Maho Beach, Saint Martin

I thought a shutter speed of 1/200s would be sufficient for a crisp capture.  It wasn't even close.
While it doesn't look too bad at posted size, a full-size crop makes it pretty obvious:

Buy two, get one free

I thought I was taking a photo of a juvenile owl and his mother.  I didn't see his little brother hiding behind him till I got home and saw it on my computer screen.

I was taking photos at an art event held in an old industrial complex. I had been there all day and I was exhausted. It was also pitch black other than the exhibits that were lit up. Heading to my car I got the idea to set the camera on timer with a flash. I have no idea why that made sense except that I was so tired. This is what I got. I had no idea there was a guy so close to me and he had no idea I was about to blind him. This always makes me laugh.

The snow was melting off of the cedar tree so fast it looked like it was raining. Then the sun peeked out and boom, instant christmas lights!

My poor cellphone camera has seen it's last. LG, in its infinite wisdom, mounted the plastic-covered camera lenses right next to the finger scanner. Needless to say, photos are crap.

So... I dug out the old Fuji bridge camera, which I have not used in 10 years. And didn't have on my glasses, so I had no clue if it was focusing on the subject or not. As you can see by the photo, *not* is the operative word:

Was trying to use the camera to diagnose a water leak in the intake line to the fridge. Accidently took a photo instead of turning off the camera.
