Happy Accident

Pelicans BWMy ag teacher used to tell me to remember the 6 Ps.  As in Proper Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance.  I try to reset my camera settings each time I put it away so that it’s ready to go the next time I need it.  I mostly remember.

Today, a flock of pelicans buzzed our house and I ran to get my camera. I was shooting in a high ISO on another project and hadn’t remembered to reset my camera. So the image I got was shot from behind the flock and has a lot of noise.  At first I was disappointed and frustrated that I’d flubbed the pelican capture again, but the more I looked at it, the more I kind of liked it.  I think it gives it some extra grit. Some mystery.  It reminds me of a mystery novel cover.

Sorry, Mr. Berry, but my poor planning worked out okay this time!

    1. Nice to meet you too! We lived in Ten Sleep for a few years, when my husband worked at the Ten Sleep Hatchery. He also worked at the Tillett Fish Rearing Station before we got married. We both loved the Basin and miss it terribly. I love your blog. Can’t wait to check out more!
