Alternatively: How NOT To Take a Jumping Photo
The Walk for Hunger was last weekend, and although I have a blog coming about the walk itself, I have a very funny story to tell you that must be told in pictures.
After finishing our 20 mile jaunt through Boston, my friend and I wanted to take a celebratory photo. M-dog* suggested a photo in which the both of us are jumping, so he asked his colleague to take a photo of us in jubilant airborne exultation.
*he’s actually asked to remain nameless, but his concession to let me post these on the internet is worth a solid nickname.
We thought it would be a straightforward process, but M-dog’s camera did not take rapid-fire shots, as his colleague trusted it would and strongly believed it should. The result is a lot of photos in the pre-planning stages of jumping, preparing to jump, and landing, but none with us both in the air.
My consistent attitude is “okay, but when do I get to eat?”
And M-Dog’s is “this is going to be the best photo ever. It’s GOING to be, I know it.”
I had originally added captions to the photos, but I think it’s better without commentary. (You can make your own, I’m sure.) I do, however, prefer the idea of seeing each picture by clicking rather than scrolling down quickly because you really ought to focus on the facial expressions, so here’s a link that works better.
TRY THAT FIRST.
If it fails, you can check the pictures out below.
M-dog thinks his colleague needs help.
M-dog decides to experiment with me as a jumper.
Okay, one more time.
It can be done!! M-dog gets the colleague back involved.
We try one final time.
And that is how to NOT to take a photo of two people jumping.
Or do, and post them to the internet.
