    DAMMIT!!!!

    So thismorning I woke up at 430 am couldnt sleep and decided to continue some Uni assignments. After a while the sun started comming up over the range (I live on the northern tablelands) and i realised it was the perfect foggy morning to shoot some mistly images of apple and cherry blossoms.....

    Alas i opened my camera bag, pulled out the camera and was about to walk out the door when I realised that i had left it on and the battery was flat, forgot to charge the spair last time I swapped them out ARRRRRRRGHHHHHH!!!!!!

    We have all done that, or gone out to take photos, driven an hour, got setup and realised the memory card is at home in the card reader

    No way.. Never done any of those yet.. That's what getting older does for you.
    You check and check again as you cannot remember if you checked the first time..

    I was about to start an arranged outside shoot for a company, with a model and lots of products to photograph, and I pulled out all my gear and started to get set up, when the tripod I brought fell to bits!
    I didn't have another tripod with me, so I had to do the whole shoot handheld.
    Luckily it was a bright sunny day and it all worked out reallly well, but I was so angry at myself for not bringing another tripod with me.

    Not related to photography, but I was racing a car and in all the excitement and trying to get the car prepared for the race, right up to the last second, no-one remembered to put fuel into it, and I ran out of petrol on the third lap of the race.
    Most embarrasing............................
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.

    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.
