Do people take their camera's EVERYWHERE they go?
I'm not on about for a shoot but say, when you go to work in the local factory each day or to the shops on a Saturday afternoon with the Missus/Hubby/partner etc? You must never be in a position when you miss out on a photo opportunity must you..?
I sometimes say to my other half that I'll take my camera with us today when we go to (da da da) just in case I see a road accident! Bit sick I know and I never hope I do but then what if you'd just happen to be on your Sunday afternoon walk and happened to witness that sad air crash in Farnborough?

I'm sure purely from a photographic point of view the pro's on this site would have seen that sad incident as an opportunity not to miss.

I'm no pro and never will be but I do often take my gear with me....just in case I see anything worth shooting ..... good, bad or indifferent. Does anyone else?

Depends where i go, if i am out for recreational purposes, such as the zoo or to watch football then i might. If the situation i am in deems near impossible to carry my gear around without dying of exhaustion, such as a days shopping in a shopping centre then i dont, as i wouldnt like to risk leaving it in the car.

No, I frequently forget it and frequently wish I had it. The DSLR's quite a lot to humph into work though, especially when I'm walking in!

Er, why don't you check to see what is scheduled to come in the next day before you leave at night?

I mean the clue is in the fact it is an annual MOT Wink

Or do you miss it every year? Tongue

LOL!!!

The fact is, I'm in the process of updating the garage's data at the moment and - I'm not the only person that takes bookings so little 'nuggets' like these slip under wire... Sad

But not for much longer! Wink Smile Grin

Always have the dslr in the car and often one of the film as well.

Never know.

Have got a few shots that I really like off just because I had the camera. And work as well, just by being there and ready to go.

If not the DSLR then always the G9 in me jacket pocket....
Proved its worth three weeks ago when 'sideswiped' by a Polish driven artic on the M1...(left-hand drive didn't see me...etc...)
Of course he spoke practically no English - and was hence most surprised for me to take his photo, a shot of his lorry (for the reg. plate and Company name) and the damage to my car...and the odd fleck of red paint left on his wheelnuts....!
Then the insurance company (phoning from India...) indignantly told me they were having difficulty tracking him down...!
I told them that as members of the EEC it should be pretty easy...and in future p'raps they'd like to issue their policy holders with a pocket phrasebook for such eventualities...
