Eddie's Man Ray Moment...

Searching through the Eddie and Irene archive today, I found this extraordinary image:

Did Eddie have a Man Ray moment, or did he just forget to make sure that the sun was behind him? Either way, its a great photograph.

That is a memorably beautiful photograph. How interesting "ordinary" people's lives are!

It certainly is one to treasure. When something turns out this good for me, I tend to refer to it as a 'happy accident'.

What a lovely, dreamy photograph.

Looks like a sepia washed pic, but not an accident. Some of the most aesthetically pleasing photos I've seen in family albums have been snaps from a Kodak instamatic where something's gone wrong and the result is an impressionistic Monet-like picture.

Everyone manages to take at least one superb, professional-style photograph in their lives, often completely by accident. This is Eddie's, and it's a cracker. And I hope the car problems have been sorted out!

This poem from the First Known When Lost blog seems right up your alley - it was the line 'Faded ephemera of non-events' that struck me particularly: http://firstknownwhenlost.blogspot.com/2011/03/neglected-poets-joan-barton.html#comment-form

Thank you zmkc - a beautiful poem. I may quote it in a future post.

I agree with Between Channels:

"Everyone manages to take at least one superb, professional-style photograph in their lives, often completely by accident."
