A broken lens... and some accidents of light

Bob Ross was fond of saying...
"There are no mistakes... just happy accidents."
Now while the fall that damaged my 55-200mm lens for my Nikon wasn't a happy accident... in any way shape, or form... I do quite like these pics. They came from me trying to work the lens and discovering it wasn't auto-focussing in any sane means.

I have tweaked them in Lightroom... but I haven't altered their content... just played with the colouring / contrast.

I hope to take the lens in to get fixed. There is a shop in Glasgow that's been recommended by two independent but trusted sources. Hopefully it won't be too expensive... or I'll need to start selling my pics to recoup the loss.

I'm not sure what else to say... other than to try and see the beauty in even the toughest of times... you'll be surprised at what you see.
