I broke the most important rule... (please JOIN me)

When photographing people in a natural (urban) scene, probably the most important rule is to make sure that the subject stands out nicely from the background. More particularly: that there are no telephone poles, lamp posts, trees, etc sticking out of his/her head.

While in Bremen, walking the city center, I shot a "from the hip" blind candid of my son, and this is the result:

There you have it : rule broken by accident, but I think I will still keep it.

(I think I could not have created a better perspective effect if I tried very hard... Sometimes chance really does all the work.)

Please join me and post your "lucky accidents" and "accidental keepers".

Let's make this a fun thread.
