These random compositions were formed by repeatedly throwing down six offcuts of card. I was reminded of a family game I played as a child where you had to extract individual wooden sticks from a pile of sticks without moving any of the others. Anyway, that aside, I do like a bit of serendipity and quite happily spent 20 minutes or so shooting about 30 of these. Then, in the spirit of randomness, screen grabbed these 16 from the grid view in Lightroom to form a collective composition.
