Licking my wounds…
I thought I’d go out for a bit of a test shoot with my various prime lenses today on a lovely summer’s morning. Things were going well and I’d taken a load of test shots with five different lenses and I thought I’d just take a few more before returning home to have a look at the shots. I tripped with my camera in my hand and my camera bag on my shoulder and my only thought was to try and save my camera and lens 🙂 . Net result was that I managed to save my gear or at least it looks that way but in doing so I fell very awkwardly and came down very heavily on my right knee and gashed it badly, as well as my right elbow and also twisted my left side somehow as I fell.
I was limping back to the town centre still pretty groggy when I tripped again, this time with the gear safely in my bag and this time managed to gash my left knee. I was feeling a bit light-headed before I set out but didn’t think too much of it, maybe I should have done so. It shook me up pretty badly and I ache and hurt all over but at least my gear is still in one piece 🙂 .
Always look on the bright side of life 🙂
Update – When going through the shots I noticed that I must have taken some shots as I fell, here’s one of my feet, please excuse the poor framing and I wouldn’t have used a 17mm lens but I didn’t have time to change it in mid air 🙂
