Heat "noise" in low light
This is one of this " creative accidents". I used picasa's "I'm feeling lucky filter" on a chronically under-exposed photo (I sometimes do this just to see what is there!) and got the characteristic blocky "heat noise" you get in most lower level lighting/long exposure digital images, suddenly formed a beautiful pattern/texture. The art of such imperfections can be beautiful, at least sometimes.
