Rarely do the best things in life come about by accident, but this one did. Bob Ross would call it a "happy accident."
We were vacationing with friends at their home in San Diego when we decided to go for a late-night swim. Photography is all about capturing moments. In this image, I have not just captured but also released this moment—to you, the viewer—of picking up the camera and accidentally pressing the shutter release button with a long enough exposure to blur the lit palms of the night beyond recognition.
Does this image reflect life or embody its very essence? For is life itself not as fleeting as this accidental moment captured—and lost—forever. Check out our fine art photography in Las Vegas page HERE to explore more of life's deepest mysteries.
