The Word A Week Challenge on A Word In Your Ear at http://suellewellyn2011.wordpress.com/2013/09/23/a-word-a-week-challenge-mistake/ is Mistake
In this day and age of digital cameras it’s so easy to just discard the bad pictures when you don’t have to count the cost or worry about running out of film.
Back in the day when every shot counted and you didn’t know what you’d get until the film came back, I kept everything! Even the mistakes! Everything went in the album and when people asked me why I kept the bad ones I used to tell them it was to remind me not to make the same mistakes again. But I kept on making them!
How many times did I race round to Skrudlands in anticipation of receiving a batch of prize-winning photos only to come away with an envelope filled with these headless wonders!
Most of my mistakes seem to be bird related. Perhaps it’s psychological. Maybe my life-long fear of birds causes me to close my eyes whenever I take a picture of them. Well, that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.
