On the Wings of a Prayer
Get up before sunrise, drink coffee, get kids ready for school and encounter emergency landing of small aircraft on Interstate 75 makes good morning conversation. The pilot of the Piper PA32 plane had engine trouble and made an emergency descent into morning rush hour traffic on the shoulder of the highway. He was definitely having a bad day.
The pilot and two passengers were not injured despite the plane hitting a power line and shearing off part of the wing on a road sign. Prayer, luck or pilot skill that prevented further tragedy? I would definitely need a change of drawers after that aviation close call...
Have camera will travel. My camera is an extension of my body. I had my Canon Rebel T4i/650D and my Apple iPhone 4S locked and loaded. In some shape or form, I always have a photographic device ready to document the world around me.
Advanced smartphones, like my Apple iPhone 4S, changed the television and print news industry. With just two clicks, anybody can shoot and share events instantaneously to the world. My kids have amazing technology ahead of them. In pale contrast, my childhood consisted of Speak & Spell and Atari 2600 with simulated wood veneer.
