Jay has been telling me for weeks now how he is gonna shoot this poker run... " I'm gonna strap my d200 with the wide angle on the monopod to the embankment and set it on time lapse or remote shutter, I'm then gonna use the harness I have for hanging out of Heli's and dangle in the water to shoot the boats coming by at water level... I'm getting some new and different shots from this run..."
New and different yes, but certainly not what you had in mind
Jay, I'm putting my backup d300 in the mail for you to use until you get a new gun, along with a check for $200.00. If anyone else wants to match my contribution I'll send you a 24" x 36" poster of any one of my or Jay's photos. ( provided that Jay will send me the digital, but I think he will...)
Jays talent adds so much to this site with his outstanding and numerous photos, I'm just a lurker by comparison... He's a great guy and a great friend, I'm glad to hear all that was lost was some hardware, the main thing is that your OK.
Catch up with you soon,
