20160909_020865 I Swear, I Did Not Do This Intentionally

Fountain Outside Castello Sforzesco, Milano, Lombardia, Italia

The scene; it was another 30 degree C day on our trip of Italia, after summer was supposed to have ended.

We were at the fountain outside of Sforza Castle in Milan.

A busking group was belting out an amplified version of the Guns and Posers classic Sweet Child Of Mine.

This rather distinctive looking woman was basking on the fountain bopping along to it.

I went to get a shot of the fountain... and the Olympus misfired.

"What the..."

So I check the settings, shoot, and... no response. "Uh-oh."

I recycle the camera, recheck everything and try another shot, not really bothering to frame properly because I'm worried that I may have a dead camera and...


It was only after I looked at the image and zoomed in on it that I noticed that the angle... ummm... may be implying something that a different angle in a more carefully composed shot wouldn't have. (And certainly I think the guy on the right would have his feet out of the water damn quick had the implication been correct.)

How fun is this? :) Made me laugh. V even if by accident.

On closer scrutiny the spray is going in the opposite direction. Of course one has to get past beautiful to see that.
