    I went and began doing a shoot today photographing what turned out to be a much larger china set than anticipated (more like four complete sets with some added extra stuff). Wile I was doing this I went to unlock the framing hinge on the tripod to move from a horizontal frame to verticle frame and in doing so accidently unlocked the camera. My body and Canon 100mm macro just rolled off the tripod. Thank god for straps, otherwise I'd have a little more than some childish embarrassment to deal with. [​IMG]
     
  2. LOL, I guess "pulling a boner" doesn't have the potential meaning in Slapamonkey as it does in my part of the world.

    Glad your camera is o.k. Maybe use less "jelly in the palm" the next time...

    Actually it does, that is why I have used that line for this kind of boanheaded move for years. People have a hard time calling me an idiot when they are choking back laughter at the blatent picture they just had pop into their head.

    Wow..Way to draw in readers, Battou! Lol. But just be careful! That would be a pricey screw-up.
