OXFORD DICTIONARY'Serendipity'The occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way: 'a fortunate stroke of serendipity' A dozen years ago I was lounging on the deck of a Greek ferry between Amorgos and Tinos. Through squinty eyes I noticed a girl sitting on a bench seat. Gabrielle was French and was a little bashful when I asked to photograph her.'Why?' she asked'Because I've never photographed a French girl before and you remind me of Juliette Binoche'' My baby plastic Ricoh FF1 on HP5 did the rest. oOo Three days later I'm leading a night seascape workshop with my tour group. In the distance I see Gabrielle swimming with her boyfriend. Serendipitous. Damm the seascape!'Hi Gabrielle, do you remember me?'"Yes, from the ferry, I remember. This is my boyfriend'.'Can I get another shot of you here. Kissing your boyfriend'This time her boyfriend looks a little bashful.But they are French. I'm a great believer in serendipity in life and photography. Sometimes, serendipity just needs a little helping hand. Need a little serendipitious photographic inspiration? Click HERE.
