Happy Accidents!

SOOC
So what exactly does SOOC mean? Well it means "straight out of the camera, not photoshopped (no editing)! Honestly, I did not make that up! I will admit to cropping about an inch off the right hand side, as I did not find it pleasing to the overall composition. Anal Retentive Attention Disorder, ARAD! Not to be confused with ADHD, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, I display those symptoms when it comes to housework!
Going thru my vacation photos I came across this shot. Remembering that I had been trying to get a photo of the elusive magnolia for days, they had either passed or were just to darn high to photograph. There's one, or so I thought. I held the camera way over my head, pointed and clicked. Above was the end result! At first glance I was disappointed, the LCD screen did it no justice. I was just not tall enough and my husband's back just not strong enough to lift me. God, those days are over! 
I was going to delete it and decided not to. Well folks, sometimes with digital photography in these days of instant gratification, Happy Accidents Happen! H A H! That's my newest acronym, along with ARAD.
Viewing the photo on my computer screen, really captured my attention. Loved the crispness of the half captured magnolia with the bokeh (In photography, bokeh is the blur, or the aesthetic quality of the blur, in out- of-focus areas of an image, or "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points...~google~) effect of the fascinating cemetery behind. Kind of gives it that eerie feeling, don't you think?
Still mastering the automatic setting on my camera along with SOOC, I will be sure to bring you more HAH! HE HE, LOL! Have a wonderful day!


Pin It!

This is definitely a nice accident! It looks like you planned it. I love the combination of the beautiful flower and the old raised tombs.

LOL! SHOK (slapping hand on knee). You've come up with all sorts of shorthand for photography. I thought what you did was a HMS (Hail Mary shot), but what do I know. :) Have a great weekend, Rose! I can always come here and leave with a smile.
