While searching for some photos I came across these spoiled clicks. There have been hundreds of clicks that were spoiled, but these were not that much spoiled… in the same sense.

When I saw them again, I thought they invoked a vibe of unknown aesthetics, something enchanting – but can’t say it in words.

I loved them.

Just out of joy, I am giving them titles too.

Most of the pics were clicked unknowingly, clicked by mistake; some of them were real camera shakes, and some of them were taken while travelling on a friend’s bike.

I can’t claim any creativity for these pictures, but am humbled by the ‘somehowness’ of their beauty.
