We shoot a lot of photos for The Big Something and most of them get dumped onto our computers with lots of other images we happen to shoot while shooting other images. Then there are the backups of images we plan to look at later, the outtakes and the images of personal things that accidentally get lumped in with shots for work. Going back through the files this past week we found dozens of images we’d completely forgotten we’d shot–as though someone else had taken them. These are the best of those we forgot we shot.
