making good from bad

The Online Photographer has a great suggestion for those photographers who really dislike something about their camera. If the results are too noisy, go with it.
Hate noise? Find a really noisy camera and use it at its worst settings for a while. See what you can do with noise. Find the subjects that noise works with. Keep going until you take a flagrantly noisy picture you really honestly like.
I've been kind of going with this idea for a while now. Pictures do not have to be sharp to be interesting. I'm kind of in the mode of "let's see what this thing can do when I do this..." which might involve twisting the camera during a long exposure.
