Would you risk going somewhere dangerous to get wonderful shots that you could never get again? Close to a volcano? Another type of natural disaster? Detroit, perhaps? I would... but I know my limits, quite a scardey cat too sometimes lol but I love adventure and photography, it would be worth it as long as I'm not injured badly and live to tell the tale. I've seen some people on tv right up close to Tsunamis and everything, I suppose if the time came I wouldn't dare to think about it :P

I'd actually love to photograph a natural disaster :ph34r: Nothing with water though. If something goes wrong when I'm in the water, I'd freak out!
I think an avalanche would be really cool (get it? haha..not funny). XD

the beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the beauty of her face, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart - the place where love resides

We may sure be twins, Kimmie but herein lies the distinct difference between you and me: Whereas you will see a volcano and go :excited: , I will see the explosion and go :unsure: . I will go to Detroit only if I get to carry a bat AND a camera with me, otherwise you can go and then need to text me every five seconds your location :D .

How far will I go to take a picture? I'd be bitten by a dog, and I'm guessing that is pretty tame compared to you crazy photogs out there :o .

LOL smh :P .

Puh-leasee, Ardi, you'll see a shark and run in the opposite direction, like this O_O and scream for Kimmie, who will be standing on the beach photographing sand sharks. She'll look up from her camera and see you running and go O_o and then return to the camera, -click click click-.
:lol: ;P jk

Crazy Kiwi man :o . :D ! That's kinda cool, though. I take to people who have a passion for what they do and nothing will deter them from what they want to achieve in their career. I might need you some day :mellow: ...for a documentary that is :D .

A BIG thanks to the beautiful BoMa, my big sister <3. I know I haven't been around much to talk, but you're more than amazing and I'm so happy to receive this graphic as a gift. Thanks for being so kind-hearted. ;)

Quotes Which Resonate with Me:
"There is no success without determination" -K.S., #24. RIP <3, 2009.
"I don't need any of you to approve of my decisions, I need ya'll to respect them" -Sandra Bullock in 'The Blind Side'.
"People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstance. The people who get on in the world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them." -George Bernard Shaw, Irish playwright.

You peeps are so adventurous :o . I am too, but I don't know...I love photography, but I'm more of a person to go places, then take pictures (being that photography is not my primary interest...food+languages are ;) ).

And LOL. Ohhhh, Sammy. What are we gonna do with ya??? :P

Haha, I'm not really that crazy.

Totally. It would be so awesome! I'd love to be Bear Grills camera operator
