Default Be Careful Out There!

My wife pointed out this story yesterday.


A woman posing for a picture lost her balance and fell to her death.

This is one of the parks that we visit, which is probably why my wife noticed the story.

Be careful out there!

G'day all

I had a family member / mad photographer just like us who, 10 years ago and out for his 2-week holidays crossed the safety barrier "to get a better shot"

He was at a very famous Aussie location called The 12 Apostles on the rugged southern coast ~ 120ft high cliffs that 200 yrs ago caught many a sailing ship crossing the ocean on voyages from Europe to Sydney

He was found after rangers noticed that his car hadn't moved from the carpark for 3 or 4 days and they went searching

He still had his 2x SLRs strapped around his neck

Has Lumix mirrorless & superzoom cameras and loves their amazing capabilities
Spends 8-9 months each year travelling Australia

Many years ago I doing a rock climbing workout on the wall shown in this photo. While resting between tries, I watched a photographer working with a bikini clad model under the overhang in the photo. She was lying down, he was working on his knees. He stood up, banged his head, then fell down with a real gusher. Lucky for him the lifeguard was there in moments, first aid kit in hand.

Yes when you capturing memories on hilly areas then be careful about photography we always forget the risk while taking great shorts so we have to remember the risk.

I had a homeless man come up to me when shooting the Brooklyn Bridge. He asked if it's for me or to publish? So I put away my camera and walked away.Why a homeless dude needs to know, I have no idea. However, the homeless do have their territory, in NYC, LA, Miami, all over, and crossing into "their" space you obey "their" rules. So, no photos if they dont permit it.
