I took this shot a couple of years ago when waiting for the shot I wanted. The moon had an orange hue this night and I wanted to see what I could do with it. Unfortunately, by the time I got my equipment and got set up, the moon had disappeared behind some clouds. So, I tried to find other things to shoot while waiting, and this was one of them. This is a "live composite" shot (something I think is unique to Olympus) where the camera takes an initial shot and then just paints in any additional light every one second or so (depending on how you set it up). This was the result.
A little later the moon did come out, but try as I might, I couldn't get eliminate the ghostly reflection it produced, so I just went with it. These are just some of my happy accidents which probably are better than the shots I was hoping to take.
I think that happens sometimes in life too. We have plans, we have dreams, we have goals, but as we reach towards them, something else happens and when we look back, we realize that what we now have is better than what we had hoped for. That is true for me personally with our move to China. I had some life and career goals back in the States, and they seemed to be good ones. But then life intervened (and I blame God for that) and I wound up on disability with no clear future. Within a year we had sold our home and moved to China full of new plans, dreams, and goals. And looking back, I wouldn't trade it for the dreams I had. For me it was a happy "accident."
