beauty in imperfection

a sweet Wabi-sabi moment

not all of my emulsions make it to the stage I consider a 'final piece' 
but there is still beauty in pieces like this . . .  one that wasn't meant to be

I don't see this as a failed work
as each emulsion is temperamental & fragile . . .
the emulsion decides for itself if it will become something else on the paper

although this particular image did hold to the paper in the beginning,
it eventually fell away like an autumn leaf from its branch
