Most people when photographing a massive feat of architectural design (also known as a dam) photograph it from the front, the sides or, if they are really lucky, the top. Me? I took this shot of the Theodore Roosevelt Dam from the back. Why you ask? It’s simple. A certain other half wouldn’t let me clamber over the all of two feet high guard rail to get a shot of the front of the dam.
Acting like a petulant teenager, I groused about not being allowed (did I really just say allowed???) to get a shot from the other side of the rail and pointed towards a man who had just stepped over and was taking a shot with his phone. To DH’s credit and caring, if I had made even a tiny slip, the trip down the hill would have been quite bumpy, rocky, prickly (cactus) and eventually wet (river) when the bottom was reached.
Safe photography means no injured body or camera parts. I can happily live with that…thank you for looking out for me, honey 🙂
