My girlfriend needed help with her photography class assignment. Her professor wanted a "self portrait" that described your true self, but someone else could take the picture. So I was enlisted to shoot that morning with her old Nikon D40. We are both avid surfcasters and she wanted a picture showing her "secret life". A happy accident is the tiny shore bird in the foreground staring at her while she climbed up a down the rocks. I didnt notice that until after if was loaded onto my computer.
