Evan and I Caused an Accident Today…


…I wish I could say it was with my “stop them dead in their tracks” good looks, but alas it was with my camera and a few silly bike tricks.

Evan and I decided to spend Friday night taking the camera and the bike for a walk. I tried my hand at panning shots - trying to blur the background and freeze him in the foreground; then, he did a few jumps and wanted me to catch him mid-air.

Well, during one of the mid-air jumps a car decided to watch Evan instead of the road and BOOM! I gasped and then let out one of the loudest and hardest belly laughs! I could not believe that we had caused an accident. We had previously been in the middle of the road, and caused no accident, and now we were safely removed on the sidewalk and some driver just couldn’t keep their eyes on the road.

The car apparently hit the median, blew out their tire and then limped down the road. It was such a loud noise, I thought the car had collided with another, but it just blew out its tire and bent the rim up pretty bad.

I totally expected an irate driver to come marching our way…especially when I jumped in the road to grab a picture of the wounded median. In Scottsdale there are a lot of hotheaded men, but apparently this driver must have been balanced enough to realize they were completely at fault. I mean Evan was even wearing a helmet…I wouldn’t say you could fault him.

We got a good laugh, and a few neat photos, out of the whole experience!


Apparently this caution sign meant nothing to the driver...


Because the "tricks" Evan was doing were way too interesting...



So this is the result....

Thanks! It was fun to shoot Evan on the bike. I got a few others that I will share soon.

Siena - it is not allowing me to see who you are. Do you mind me asking who this is?
