While reading the article "Why Music?" in the December 20th - January 2nd 2009 issue of The Economist, I came upon this line: "Music is a cross between an accident and an invention."
That got me thinking: Perhaps a good photograph is a cross between an accident and an invention, too.
I guess you could say that this image was an accident: I accidentally found this abandon house while walking around an abandoned estate in Westchester, NY. You could also say that the final image is an invention: I experimented with HDR software to "invent" a unique image.
You might also say my photograph is a dumb luck shot, because all the elements came together to make an interesting shot. What's more, I was lucky to meet this model on one of my workshops.
Or you might say that it's an example of the space-time continuum: that I chose to capture only this exact space with my camera when I was at this exact place at an exact time.
