Oopsie...

This photo was taken at a shutter speed too slow to hand hold the camera.  It turned out pretty cool though - I put it to good use.

Raindrops

Lighthouse in Nova Scotia

Combination of  my "raindrops," the lighthouse photo, Kim Klassen's "Annie" texture topped off with Buz Sims filter

A happy accident, wouldn't you agree?

Love your slow shutter speed results! Very cool. The lighthouse is so cute!

I think some of our "boo-boo" shots with a blur or motion end up being some of our most interesting -- they seem to tell a story in a much different way. These are all terrific.

A happy accident indeed! Very cute lighthouse. Your 'raindrops' created a masterpiece!

That is the most unusual lighthouse that I have ever seen but I've only seen some on the west coast and east coast of the US.

I am a big fan of lighthouses and this one has added interest. Great job.

RaD said...

LOL! I've had quite a few of those mistakes. Looks like you've found a great use for yours!

I love lighthouses, have had on my bucket list to visit the northeast coast of North America to photograph lighthouses. This one, to me, shows its scandinavian heritage, I saw a similar one - but very large, in Norway.

This is an awesome lighthouse, sitting in the grass. Your rain texture is so unusual. So creative!

A beautiful little lighthouse and I can just imagine your last shot as an illustration in a children's book.
