Happy Accidents

I was explaining to someone recently that I keep all my photos, including those that might be considered misfires. Sometimes I end up using them later, as part of a graphic for Wild Violet. Often, though they're not intentional, I find they retain an abstract beauty. Here are some from 2004 and 2005. I'll share others at another time.

Una - Black and White (click to enlarge)

Una begging at a party in 2004. The blurriness makes it feel like a painting.

Emma - Black and White (Click to enlarge)

My sister's dog, Emma, in 2004. The angle is interesting, even if it's blurry.

Singing in the Rain (Click to enlarge)

A blurry image from a 2005 stage production of movie songs.
I believe it has a certain poetry. Can you name this scene?

Beauty is sometimes flawed.
