Behind the Lens: Things photographers don’t want to hear

I was wondering what happened when they took the camera down, that was at the Texas game right? bummer.

When people tell me I must have a great camera after looking at one of my shots, I like to tell this joke:

"Once upon a time a photographer was invited to have dinner at the home of a nice couple. During dinner the wife comments to the photographer “Your pictures are beautiful. You must have a great camera.” The photographer nods politely.

After finishing dinner the photographer comments to the wife “That was a fine meal. You must have some great pots!"

2 people in custody after police chase on Kansas Turnpike

I passed the incident at about 4:45 they had about 8 patrol cars and the suspects sitting on the ground in those plastic handcuffs. Right across the street from the water tower. Quite the scene.

Have you ever been outside of the U.S.?

England 3X, Australia 2X, Mexico 1X, Jamaica 3X, Canada 10+X. It's always interesting but I'm always happy to get back to the US.

Bill would allow guns on campus

"Fully Loaded Firearm" as apposed to what, a partially loaded one? Obviously you are a firearm expert. I'm a CCW Permit holder so I guess you are talking to me or not me.

I'm sorry but there are no guarantees in life, but are these things happening? Handguns going off on their own? Firearms ending up in the lost and found? I have to say, for a numbers guy I don't see any actual numbers. I too would prefer that *everybody* left guns at home or a safe location but in the real world that does not happen. At the very least I've gone through the background check and training involved. I continue to train and practice. At home in the gun safe or in it's concealed holster, my firearm is safe, it will not just go off. If you don't believe that you don't understand how they function.

Driver, passenger injured in rollover accident late Friday on U.S. Highway 59

Good grief, we all make mistakes. Everyone seems to forget when they were young. Sounds like no one was seriously hurt and I'm glad for that. I've mentioned this a few times but want to put a plug in for a teen driving school that is super inexpensive but worth it's weight in gold,

It's only about 70 bucks but it teaches some real skills with avoiding accidents etc. I'm not affiliated with this other than I had my kid go this year. One on one training with an instructor using your car teaching ABS use, wet and dry skid pad etc. all in a safe place. There should be another one early next year. It's a shame more people don't know about this. Heck I know a lot of adults that could benefit from this type of training.
