Here There and Everywhere

What Happened Here?

I take photos, but I am not all that sophisticated about photography. January, for me, is a month of clearing out and organizing; it helps me face the rest of the year with more confidence. As I was clearing out duplicate photos, I came across this:



My photo has holes in it.


It looks like a tear in the photo, see the way the lines resonate around the center? I think the holes in the bottom might actually be in the woven fabric, but the hole in the center is definitely a flaw. How did this happen? Are all my digital photos at risk?

  1. Nothing’s wrong. I think it’s a reflection on the glass when you took the picture.

    When image processors get corrupted you get something like this and this, and sometimes very small white/colored dots known as corrupted pixels.

  6. looks like you took the shot thru a shop window. Digital corruption is completely different. My advice is to periodically backup to disk.
