A news photographer friend of mine, Stan Lim, grabbed this picture at a sporting event.
The circumstances like what sort of event and where aren’t important.
Stan also knew to take this picture from behind so the photographer will remain anonymous.
He posted it on Facebook. As expected there were some comments.
I tend to live and let live, but occasionally when I see plain abuse even if it’s not my equipment, I have to shake my head and sigh in disbelief at such callousness.
Thanks Stan for allowing me to use your picture on the blog.
I’m sure you also have some thoughts about this. No doubt there will be some in the Nikon camp who will take a cheap shot. Let me hear what you guys think.
Among the responses I’ve read on FB:
- Alex C— It hurts just watching this. … And I’m not talking about the physical pain in this guy’s butt. What a waste of quality gear!
- Doug B–Kinda makes sense for a Canon lens!!!
- Peter S–I hope the lens cap is on.
