Happy Accident

An accidental photo I took of a carpet. Not really sure how it happened, and it’s blurry because my hand was moving. (I intended to take a picture of a faraway sign so I could then enlarge the photo and read the small print on the sign, LOL 😂 )

Instead I got this rainy-day, impressionistic image and decided I kind of liked it.

  1. I can almost see a deer in the middle. Kind of a rorschach test. Cool!

    I’m afraid I don’t see anything other than various shades of grey.

    • That’s really all I saw, too. Except that the colors I saw were gray, olive green, beige, and maybe the tiniest hint of mauve. I have no idea what colors the original carpet has. I was busy doing other things and didn’t pay attention or take a second look. I guess what I really likedI about this picture was just its overall look, like a streaky, patchy abstract painting.

    Looks like a watercolor of a sandstorm. Or maybe an evening rainstorm. (I can see the deer, too. Poor thing is getting either drenched or sand blasted.)
