This is a story about following through. A reminder to be dependable and only say what you mean.
Last week some friends and I visited Banff and Jasper National Parks in Alberta, Canada. It is gorgeous. Go there.
One of our days, we decided to pull over at an unmarked overlook. We walked a small trail that took us to one of the many lakes in the area. It was raining. It was muddy. But it was still beautiful.
Now let’s take a step back and switch gears. Do you know of that little trick with panorama pictures where you can end up in multiple frames of the image? Essentially you just have to hold your pose, then run into the next frame, hold your pose, run, hold, run, and so on. It’s pretty simple - but for us amateurs it takes a while to get a clean shot.
Back to the story. I was camerawoman this time as we attempted a neato pano photo by the lake. Remember I mentioned rain and mud? Yea. So as cameragal, safely planted on my feet, I told my friends “if either of you slips on that mud, you’d better hold it, do it for the ‘gram*” You know - so we’d get it in the panorama and it’d be hilarious.
Well I’m an amateur and the whole pano process wasn’t working for me. So I asked my friends to try so that we could see if it was me or if it was the phone. (Turns out it wasn’t me.) But that means suddenly I was in front of the camera. And this happened. And I held it. For the ‘gram.
