In late March 2005 I drove from near Santa Fe, NM, to Bethesda, MD. Every 10 miles I took a photo out the opened right side window of the car.

Speaking of rule-governed photography, here's a great example-- "Living My Life Faster," eight years of JK Keller's daily self-portraits, turned into a 1-minute, 44 second video. Go to: http://www.c71123.com/daily_photo/

Have you tried rule-governed or arbitrary photography? Do you know of others' projects? Please add a comment here including the links so everyone who visits Every10Miles can check them out.

Happy Halloween!

The pumpkin's glowing grin leads off "Lucky Flukes," another collection of debatable art at "Every 10 Miles." These are digital photos gone wrong, that the photographer did not intend to take or that came out quite unexpected. Colors distort, angles tilt, focus blurs, lights wiggle. Some are so far from representing reality that we can't tell where or when they were taken. Here is a gallery of some of our most interesting mis-takes.

Most of these photos were shot (apologies to Nikon) by a Nikon Coolpix 8700.

Sometimes the camera has a mind of its own. You didn't intend that photo or how it turned out. But the result can be interesting.

Thanks, Maggie. I am glad you like the concept--and the music. How did I think of it? I had to deliver the car from one side of the US to the other. I thought the long drive might be boring. I wondered how I could make it interesting, and the "every 10 miles" idea was born.

In late March 2005 I drove from near Santa Fe, New Mexico, to Bethesda, Maryland. Every 10 miles I took a photo through the opened right side window of the car.

My route lead south through eastern New Mexico, then east into Texas and through Oklahoma, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania, and then sourth into Maryland.

The camera was a Canon EOS Rebel S. The film was Fuji ASA 200. The car was a 2001 Toyota RAV4
