Saturday was the second annual Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk. I attended last year, and certainly wasn’t going to miss it this year.
So 7:00AM found me mainlining some coffee into my veins, and meandering to Sharlot Hall Museum to meet up with a bunch of like-minded folk. We putzed around the grounds for a bit, taking photos of all the pretty flowers, did a group photo, and then were on our way. A few folks wanted to check out the railroad bridge a few blocks away, so I gladly volunteered to show them around.
We decided to meander through the Granite creekway to snag some photos along the way. I’ve been wanting to get a few snaps of the dragon that I saw on GrannyJ’s blog.
I get up close and snap a few:
I decide to get a wider shot, but I’m shooting with my 50mm, so I have to back up. Thankfully the creek is empty so I decide to just hop on down. Unfortunately I decided not to look too closely before jumping. And as such, I twisted the holy hell out of my ankle and ended up on my back. All I could do was laugh.
Laugh, and get my darn picture! :)
I dusted myself off, and tried to walk away the pain. I made it up to the railroad bridge a few blocks away, took some shots, and then quickly hobbled to my office (thankfully nearby). I iced down the ankle for a bit. I could tell with all the swelling that it was going to be a rough weekend. I called a friend to pick me up and take me home.
A few short hours later I was headed to the hospital, with a VERY swollen ankle. X-Rays came back favorable, just a bad sprain. THANK GOODNESS. Now I just have to ask myself; was the picture worth the cost of the hospital visit?
Yeah, probably. :-D
