Happy Accidents

Photoessayist: July 4th in Laguna BeachSometimes the happy accident makes for the good photograph. You may not like the above photo but this photographer does. Heck you may not like most of what a photographer does but that's life.

This photo was taken while I was waiting for the fireworks to begin. I ended up moving to a different location for the fireworks. There was a lamp post just to the right and it was effecting the photo. I think I should have stayed. All these people really makes the photo interesting. The fireworks would have been above the fellow in the center. So you would have had the fireworks and with time exposures from 1 second to 2 seconds there would have been all those blured people in the foreground.

With the lamp light (unseen to the right) and with the fireworks of varying light values I would have had some interesting photos.

Oh well there is always next year. Only problem is California. It's broke. They are giving out IOUs. No money. That effects every level of government in the state. Here in Laguna Beach they may have NO fireworks next year.
