I was messing around with some features built-in to Picasa by Google, and I was creating a collage of sorts from a folder with a fairly large number of images, and Picasa accidentally exported this truncated image:

picasa truncated

adjusting the contrast & levels brought about the true face of the error:

picasa truncated adjusted

i’ve always appreciated the errors that digital programs throw at us, such as this one which suggests a scar or something which has been wiped over or covered up, perhaps a piece of graffiti on an important building, or a burn-mark of sorts.
