Flukes on Demand

Posted: July 2, 2018 in creativity, Fashion, Photography


Some pictures can be planned. I remember visiting Nick Vedros in his photo studio in Kansas City in the 1980s and watching him create a photo which previously existed only in his mind’s eye. Just amazing. I, however, depend on serendipity. I didn’t set out to make a timeless view of a little boy exploring the world;  I was babysitting for my grandson Walter and I grabbed a pair of jean shorts two sizes too big and one of my adjustable oversize hats and it was off to the park. Only after reviewing the usual daily snapshots did I discover that I had not photographed an 18-month-old toddler but a mini Tom Sawyer circa 2018. No, creating a photo from my imagination is not my forte. Let’s be generous and call it a conscious fluke.
