Watch the camera!!........ by 


This happened at the occasion of the UEFA cup in manchester, opposing The glasgow rangers and the St Petersburg Zenith.

The guy DID NOT get hurt, AND the camera still seemed to work. I could see it coming though: the way he was going down with a strap on each shoulder AND something in his hand AND his hat.. People, sometimes, you wonder…

He was trying to take photos from a football fan crowd from a truck, the descent was harsh, to high, landing on a crushed metal barrier and helping hands (yup, did not say they weren’t helpful when they are not cheering and fighting). I saw at least 20 guys go down that route, still wondering how they did not get hurt. Probably high intake of beer, it relaxes the muscles and helps when falling..?

It all started when I was about 8 when my brother received a camera as a present. It fascinated me, and a year later, I won a basic camera for holiday work at school. The virus was inoculated.
I had my first SLR 18 years ago, went staight for the darkroom at Uni but decided that staying up all nights was not a good idea so I restricted myself to only taking photos after a while. I quickly jumped on the digital bandwagon and loved it straight away..

  • It was a good one, but an old one, so he had the newer precious one in his other bag…
