I was backing down a ice wall and looked up and thought this is cool so got my camera out of the front of my jacket where I had tucked it and went for the shot only to discover that I was out of film. So I hung there with one hand and changed film with the other. Looking at my hard you can see that it had been a rough day.
That picture came in first place, senior, sporting catagory 2003 Fur Rhondy competition.
