You think photography's easy?
« on: October 07, 2009, 04:59:37 PM »
Take a look at these stories.

Oh and make sure you keep going to Matthieu Paley's.  For lots of reasons.

Worst thing that ever happened to me with a camera was getting lost in shark infested waters (yes, really).  I thought about swimming the 2 miles or so to the beach and then remembered from my safety briefing that most of the beaches were mined (this was Mozambique).  I didn't even get any pictures.  But I did get rescued by a fishing boat.  I was also voted "person most likely to survive in shark infested waters".  Which is kind of nice.

I like Paolo Marchesi Kangaroo's shot, even though it might be a bit blurred!  :2funny:

Chris Andersons reminds me of the one shot i never got - Clapham Junction Disaster.

It's hard to be a Train Driver watching something like that happen whilst also being a keen photographer thinking "i'm in the right place at the right time".

Duty won the day - i never got a single picture, but i have some very graphic memories of the crash and all the unfolded afterwards.

Some amazing stories, and i can understand why Jonathan  is taken by Matthieu Paley's story.
