Four things not to do while taking photos

T505 Here are some good ideas from a recent New York Times article:

  1. Do not back up when taking photos at the Grand Canyon.
  2. Do not stand in front of a one-ton wild buffalo and then move in closer to get a better shot.
  3. Do not place your child on the wild buffalo for a photo
  4. Do not do stupid things and then expect to be rescued.

It’s amazing the things people will do in the wilderness, assuming technology will take care of them. See Technology Leads More Park Visitors Into Trouble and The Most Dangerous Threat to U.S. National Parks: Idiots Armed with the Latest Gadgets for more details.
