Wounded in Action
I take my camera everywhere I go. The picture you see on the left is the last one I took before the accident. Once again I was strolling along, neighbourhood was quiet, as it usually is in the middle of the day.
As I came up to this grove of trees I could see this guy’s legs sticking out. Scheming about how I could get him to move, I wondered how I could capture the shot I wanted.
As I got closer I saw it was a guy eating his lunch and talking on his cell phone.
That is the last thing I saw before my legs went out from under me. I was wearing my padded down filled coat, thankfully. My coffee cup jumped out of my hand on impact, contents forming a river on the pavement, its’ lid flying through the air like a Frisbee.
