Photography tour guide killed by toxic lava fumes in Hawaii Sad but out and about shooting always seems something out there can kill you. Interested in anyone willing to share their close calls. Has your passion gotten you into trouble or risk life or limb for a shot? Dumb things you did that you shouldn't have for getting the click? Worst for me was a walkabout in semi-civilized (Due to Homeless,Criddlers & Tweakers) downtown portland. Caught toe on curb walking. Fell broke big toe and left little pinkie. Gash above left eye on brow line. Didn't go to hospital so have scar now and crooked pinkie. Big toe black under toenail. Use to be eyed alot from the fringe outdoor people. Eyeing my Dslr and bag. Not as much I noticed moving to m4/3rds. Smaller bag and camera. Pretty good about being security aware 100 ft. around me tho. Usually spot trouble quickly and side tracking or changing directions away. So staying out of that kind of trouble is 2nd nature. .
