    To make a mistake once is simply an oversight. It is a learning opportunity.

    But to make the same mistake twice would be . . .

    I made a 15 hour trip to florida to stay for 4 days to photograph a stunt event, only took one battery that was halfway dead, and forgot the charger at home, and the worst thing about it, I could have had my girlfriend overnight it to me really cheap cause we both work at fedex, but I didn't even think of that till the last night there. It wasn't a good week for me, but atleast I had my video camera with me lol.

    I was in Northern Thailand visting a Hill Tribe village of the Karen tribes. Took a bunch of photos and then found out that the boarder was open to Myanmar(Burma) for that day and we could cross over. Took more photos, what a great day!

    All of a sudden I realized I must be over 40 some shots on my roll of film. (I had a Canon AE-1 at the time) Then it struck me. I never made sure the leader had been taken up and the film wasn't winding!

    S!*T!!!! and a few other choice words. Lost the whole days shots because I didn't verify I had the leader of the roll of film attached. I never did that again. I did other stupid stuff but not that.
