I was inspired by a blog entry from Ashenhurst Photo who I harass in a loving way on Twitter. Basically it was list of slightly crazed things they’ve done to get a picture – and I immediately knew I had a non-trivial list to reply to them with when they finished off the piece with Please feel free to share the crazy things you’ve done in order to get a shot.
Drove out to an Astrophysics observatory
Chased a bee
Chased a tornado warned storm
Laid down on some of the busiest railroad tracks in Calgary, at night.
Woken up at o’stupid thirty
Stepped out onto a train trestle
Stopped to apparently stare at a tree like a loon
Got in front of a mass of motivated anarchists and antiracists.
Done something during a shot Your Not Supposed To Do ™
Froze my kiester off for a wildlife shot
Held a Damned Heavy Lens completely stationery for five minutes waiting for a shot
