Mistakes will happen...

Today's blog is all about mistakes. I forgot to reset my camera which was set to tungsten and I was walking on Wall street in the rain. I glanced at the Federal Hall building where George Washington took the oath of office as our first President and was home to the first Congress, the Supreme Court, and the Executive Branch offices. I saw a woman standing for a typical tourist snap so I took the image. When I checked the exposure, I saw my mistake in living blue color. Since my mind was turned to history, I decided that it looked o.k., like an early photographic image a la Julia Margaret Cameron. Inspired, I looked for more images that as blueprints would resonate with history. I love mistakes!
