here’s another happy accident for you this week. this is, perhaps, my favorite to date. best i can remember, it was for a story about a college-kid in greenville, sc who got a scholarship/did something outstanding. i took photos of him walking home from school. this photo always reminded me of a grateful dead album cover for some reason…ha.

 

and here is one i can’t be sure why i’m voluntarily posting. ha. last year graham and i made homemade strawberry jam from fresh, local, organic strawberries. yum. #understatementoftheyear

if any of you are considering hiring us to shoot your wedding or family event, please don’t worry. i’m not scary in real life :)

so i (mel) was a photojournalist in arguably one of the most beautiful places in the country:  charleston, sc

[the sunsets there are ah-mazing (but that’s a different post)].

during an assignment while i was an intern there my vertical grip’s shutter accidentally pressed against my hip and took several frames (at 7 frames per second you can end up with a lot of “extra” photos).

when i got back to the newspaper and looked through my take from that day i noticed there were several accidental frames that were mildly interesting.

“hmm…,” i thought, “i bet this happens a lot, these, accidents…..these….happy accidents.”

thus, the happy accident folder was born. i kept it the whole four years i was there.

here are two from that very first day:

 

and as you may imagine, there are/were lots of pictures of my feet in the happy accident folder

 

thanks for reading!
