Cock ups...

I can forgive myself for making a mistake. Over the years I have:

forgotten to charge batteries;
forgotten batteries;
lost Lee filters;
failed to notice circular polariser was fitted and struggled with low lighting levels indoors;
dropped a lens in the only puddle for miles;
carried my camera mounted on a tripod only to discover it wasn't properly locked on to the quick release;
when I bought my first DSLR (secondhand), I bent a pin in the memory card slot before I managed to take a shot with it;
miscalculated journey times;
said to myself, 'that looks nice, I'll come back to it later,' only to discover that - gasp - the sun had moved and the clouds had arrived;
forgotten to download the contents of my memory card and subsequently gone out with drastically limited storage;
been wildly optimistic about my handholding technique;
been wildly optimistic about the results I'd get pushing film ISO;

... you name it.

I can forgive myself for making a mistake; it's remembering to not repeat it that's the problem.
