A: Do you know?

The funny thing is this was a throwaway shot from a while ago where I was playing around with liquids and was pouring water in my mouth.

A second look at it had me cropping and rotating 90 and messing with saturation, etc. and voila. A perfectly innocent and plain picture takes on a whole different meaning after post processing.

Ain't digital photography cool?

    Good thing you didn't throw this away. Some of the best photographs result from accidents and the unexpected.
