Happy Mistakes

Happy mistakes in analogue photography are a thing of beauty. The effects from mistakes can be quite remarkable. Of course some may ruin the photo, but usually if you just look at it from a different perspective, leave the ordinary behind, you will find something special.

(Photo taken in the Berlin Zoo using Lomo LC-A+)

The mistake in this photo came about from a wrongly wound film in the camera. As a result it can be viewed either horizontally or vertically, giving odd views on the reality. Vertically, the elephant is standing on top of a wall with rodents, looking fierce and powerful. Horizontally, the photo depicts a rodent habitat, with an elephant magically suspended on a vertical wall, sideways. In photos like these, you really can interpret them in whatever way you wish you. Let your imagination run wild!

P.S. Don’t forget the random pigeon on the right =) 

Till later world.
