Title: Sometimes You Have To Scramble For The Camera
Post by: quincy on June 22, 2010, 12:01 PM
The camera was sitting in the bag away from the blowing sand. Suddenly, I made a dive for the bag to catch the shot.

Captioning can be dangerous! :D

Excellent capture.  :)

That's part of the reason I prefer cameras to camcorders.

Capture that split-second.  :)

Here's my last scramble shot:

Sure hope you submit that photo for the annual GWTW calendar. I'm sure it would get plenty of votes.  ;D

I think we can invoke a Rule 34 (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Rule%2034) policy on this one. (A hat tip to FA for the 'education'  :-\)

 :D Now we know that Meanies aren't really mean, just very self assured! ;D Always wondered what the big grin was all about.

Thanks John.

Some of the reactions have been just what I expected/hoped for. No coffee through the nose reports though (the apex of reactions). ;D

Two adults busting a gut and one teenager blushing in this house.

Well done!

Yikes!

Not sure if these two Meanies are acquainted.

Remember the kiteporn.com web site?

Dave is an old pro at this.

And he spends way too much time looking at big kites from odd angles...   :D
