#11 I should not run with expensive camera equipment
From time to time, on my travels, I've needed to make a run for it to get 'that' shot.
But one should always be mindful of the (very) expensive camera equipment we employ to get the money shot.
Point in case, an assignment in Hawke's Bay where I took a nasty spill while carrying a very expensive camera and lens. Fortunately I possessed the sense of mind to flip onto my back before hitting the turf to provide plenty of cushioning before striking ground zero.
No cameras or lenses were injured in the pursuit of this end.
Just my dignity.
That took a battering and was lovingly captured by a fellow reporter.
