2200 ft drop (not dropped)
black canyon, co 2012
so it finally happened. my first true and long overdue camera accident. yesterday i dropped/flung the digital about 3 feet straight onto a raw concrete floor. smack! lens first. ouch. the lens cap pops off and shoots across the room. damaged my 50mm 1.4, possibly for good. damn.
later i realized how preferable this scenario was, compared to the previous week, when i held the same cam (with most expensive lens) neckstrap-free over the highest sheer cliffs in colorado. 2200 ft!
the top floor of the tallest building in the world – the burj khalifa in dubai – is 1918 ft.
