luck and timing


I've been editing the pictures that I took at my sister's wedding, and I was struck this afternoon by the incredible difference between these two images. The second one was a complete accident- I don't believe I even was looking through the viewfinder when I took either of them- it was a rush of just pointing the camera at the steps & clicking away. Serendipity is such an incredibly huge part of photography that it's ceased to shock and annoy me that the good photos on my rolls are never ones that I expect to be good- the best ones are usually the throwaway shots that I barely remember clicking the shutter for.
