I gotta hand it to the guy. He tries. He really does. Last week I posted about him quacking at ducks while leaning off a bridge, taking photos for me that hopefully might be a good painting subject.

Today had him stuck hip deep in snow, in a ditch beside a creek. Whatever made him think he could walk on top of a three foot deep drift of snow and not expect to sink?
I admit, he did get the better snapshots than the ones I took from the safety of the road!
It was a Kodak moment for sure, but unfortunately, he was the one holding the camera.

He also got a good shot of a train. A really close up shot. If it had been any closer, I wouldn't be here to write this.
I could see the barriers closing down and the lights flashing, but I couldn't hear the bells 'cause I was yelling "Stop Stop!" He calmly told me to relax, while he struggled with one hand on the steering wheel, and the other hand trying to get the camera aimed out the open window to take the shot. We stopped with the bumper almost touching the barrier!
Ever see a train barreling toward you at 110 miles per hours, completely enveloped in a swirling cloud of snow?
Trust me, you don't want to see that.

All in all we got quite a few good photos for me to try to paint landscapes from.
I'm beginning to wonder, though, if maybe still lifes wouldn't be safer way to go.

He certainly gets up to some antics, is he safe let out on his own?

llis, I will remember to bring two cameras when we go out on our next photo adventure. And maybe some rope, a lifejacket, a shovel, and a cell phone for calling the fire department in case he gets stuck in a tree. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/wink.gif

Roan, you bet I'm lucky! I'm also in a constant state of near- hyperventilation with this guy! lol
