Mission impossible

Crawling into the machinery of a bowling lane. On my first attempt, I did not see the light barrier that starts the pin-sled. So it came down (to sweep the pins) about 50 cm in front of my lens - quite scary. I thought about switching from my wide-angle to a longer focal length to stay further outside of the machine. But then I stopped breathing, crawled back in, stopped moving completely and did 9 exposures without starting another sled-runner...
