coincidental compositions

Here’s another pair of coincidental compositions (see previous post).  These two images were taken in succession, moments after each other.  They are the result of depressing the shutter randomly while coasting down various streets on a bicycle.  From a moving bicycle a person can’t really use the viewfinder or adjust any settings.  Th fun is leaving it to chance and seeing what happens, a reminder that sometimes even spilled paint can have some cool outcomes.

trail and stream

While reminiscing over pictures from Alaska I stumbled across these two images.  I think the similarities are pretty striking.  Most apparent is the S curve of the trail and the stream as they meet the vanishing point.  Also, in each image a dark mass fills the left of the frame.  As a further coincidence, the shots were taken in immediate succession of one another on the same day.  I love a good coincidence, so I thought I would share.
