  Dangerous hobby indeed.
  Reminds me that in the film days I used a Nikon FM 2 with a motorwind at about 7 frames a second, this really made the winder spin.
  Unfortunately the winder was a bit loose. I was using the camera in "Portrait" mode once, when the winder flipped down, got caught under my right nostril and damn near ripped my face off!

Now that would have been a picture worth seeing!  :P

Sadist.

Photography can be extremely dangerous. How often don't you read about people, falling into ravines, or off cliffs onto the beach or into the sea, because they went just that little step too far, for the perfect shot?

Oh I've seen a fair bit of that, but alcohol was involved, not photography.  ;D
And more, much more than this, I did it my way
