In the Moment of Chance
Challenge series hosted by aleatory. Challenges start on Mondays.
Being in the moment of chance is a theme that plays a role when the observer is synchronized with his or her experience. Photographing an element of unplanned output is the game. This may include elements of gazing, when forms from the abstract become clearly distinguishable. Examples of this may include forms expressed via fire flames, clouds, water, smoke and other mediums that are very sensitive in dynamics to both physical and sometimes ethereal parameters. Forms may also be in a static state of which a prior dynamic of chance formed it to something distinguishable. Examples of this may include formed ice, snow, rocks, sand and your breakfast toast.
