Futility and the art it became

milk Last night, an attempt to open a carton of milk went awry when the plastic fastener absolutely refused to come off. Though the cap does indeed twist off, each time I see the milk in the refrigerator with the fastener hanging off, I am reminded of my failure.

This was a failure that I felt I needed to share with the world (via my blog), but when I photographed it, I realized that I had potentially produced the most artistic photo I have ever photographed. Just look at the contrast! The reflection! The chiaroscuro! I barely know how to use my new camera!

And failure becomes victory!
