As some of you may know, I like taking pictures with my Polaroid SX-70. I have been using the color film from The Impossible Project, and it has been pretty hard to work with. I often end up with over- or under-exposed images. I suppose that is part of the fun.
A couple of days ago, I tried to take a routine photograph of the wife. Of course, I managed to mess up the exposure completely, resulting in this:
At first I was disappointed. Then I remembered a favorite (and somewhat dark) portrait of Bill Cosby (of all people!) taken by John Loengard of LIFE Magazine, and noticed how much this resembled that image. I leave you with that image, and a post-processed version of the above. What beautiful serendipity!
