Everytime I Don't Bring My Camera

Sat Jun 05, 2004 12:20 pm

Something like this happens.

I have my replacement Pentax PZ-70, and it is still a virgin. One of these days I need to break it's cherry and take some aircraft photos.

So what happens today. I drive into work and there parked on the ramp next to ours is a very unusual visitor.

Spanish Air Force CASA 295 35-45



ARRRRGHHHHH!!!!

that's why I am ALWAYS loaded.
I go just about nowhere (maybe to get groceries, not much more) without at least one camera and associated equipment.

I have to agree... I always take my camera with me to the airport. Even in worst conditions. Last time i left it at home we got 2 JU52s!  Sad

Too add insult to injury I was out on the ramp and could have gotten a neat shot of Evert's Air Cargo's C-46 landing and of a KC-135, another fairly rare visitor taxing by.

Buy a second hand compact with the most optical zoom you can get and the ability to accept normal batteries and leave this camera (+batteries) in your car, pocket, office or wherever you spend the most time (excluding home)  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I know exactly what you're talking about! A few days ago, I was too lazy to bring the camera bag to work as the schedule didn't forecast anything interesting at all. There was Atlas A320 TC-OGF, however, for the 1st time, coming in 12 hrs late in then old colours and in bright sunshine

I can't say that ever happened to me, but something close did. I was at lunch, going the long way back, which meant circling around the Boeing Everett plant. I looked up and there was an AN-124 coming into Paine Field. I found a place to pull off the road, grabbed my camera, turned it on and started firing. Got off 7 good shots. Hit the button to review them and read the screen. "NO CF CARD"  Angry

last friday coming back from work, in the approach of EIN, and hearing on the radio that "Air force 1" (actually an E-4B but what do they know) landed at EIN. My camera still back home, halfway the other side of the country!

when I say always I mean always, and not just to the airport.

Whereever I go there's always a camera within a few minutes from me.

What is worse, I got here tonight and forgot to even get my camera off the shelf.

That C-295 is still here!

I learnt that its always handy to have a camera nearby, especially when you're in the car... in the event that you're involved in an accident, you can use the camera to document the situation/damage before moving to the road side etc ...

Once I was travelling on a bus back from the country, and there was a traffic jam. On the side of the road, there was this quite new Toyota Corolla that was burning in flames. Camera was on my lap, but all I did was to stare.... until we passed then I remembered about the camera. Stupid me.

Cancidas,

I had the same orders from my shift supervisor  Smile
His words were " No camera equipment should be brought from home to work, it's illegal to take pictures of airplanes"
So I never brought my camera to work. Almost everyday I bought Kodak disposable camera in the terminal  Smile
Orders are orders, I didn't bring camera from home.
And here is self gloss with "Then" Airliners.net acceptance  Smile

When I walked past Stockholm-Bromma City Airport 1st of June last week without my camera gear, I missed the chance of getting a photo of SE-RDX,
Gulfstream V, as it departed from runway 30 for after its first visit.
Since I'm a bizjet freak I got a little frustrated.
