Every time I talk to my wife about purchasing new equipment.

Quote from: digital paradise on March 11, 2013, 01:04:17 AMEvery time I talk to my wife about purchasing new equipment. +1 lolMine is whenever my wife logs into our amazon account after I've ordered a new lens. Tomorrow should be fun... Just ordered the 135mm f/2L yesterday. :-)
Major riots had just broken out in a very poor, and relatively lawless country. I was covering some of it from the back of a motorbike when an angry looking guy in army fatigues clutching an AK 47 (or 74 - not entirely sure) ran towards the bike screaming and pointing. Quite a moment, as I was the only white face around, and the only guy with a camera as well. Thankfully it turns out that it was not me he was pointing at, but a bike over my left shoulder heading in the same direction as me.
47 is distinctly bigger than a 74
Side of a lake, bag on a slope, tipped over, opened, 24mm f/1.4L II rolled out, all in slow motion, off it went, comedy-style, down to the waterline...plop! :-/$312.08 repair charge for cleaning and water damage.Maybe I got off lightly!
During my vacation in Edinburgh, Scotland I paid for an expensive private tour of the city's famous monuments, castles, buildings etc, I forgot that there was no CF card in my 7D (as I had taken it out a night before to transfer the images to my laptop but forgot to reload the card back into the camera) to my bad luck I also had enable shutter release without the card feature ... so I proudly kept clicking away at all the glorious places (with my wife and kids reluctantly posing at my commands) ... when I got back home and found out what I had done, my wife gave me an earful for making the family pose for nothing ... till this day, whenever we go on a vacation, I get teased about it by the wife.
