You spin me right round, baby, right round...

On a sunny day last week with about 20 minutes I allowed myself to escape the office, with camera in hand, i set out to have some fun. I decided to expand on the camera tossing experiment and see what would happen outside. It was slightly nervewracking at first given that I did not have the safety of my couch cushions like last time and that I was pretty much throwing my only camera up into the air, spinning it wildly while engaging the shutter, and expecting to catch it, all over pavement. This from someone who never could catch a ball, and in fact has ended up with a broken nose twice from miscalculating the trajectory of a pop-fly. Anyway, it was exhilirating...and I caught it every time! Here are some of the results of the exterior experiment.




This whole camera tossing thing is great...it's somehow liberating and spontaneous...I'm never quite sure what I'm going to get and am quite often pleasantly surprised!

Those are some great images...and quite brave on your part!

So glad to see it, by the way...I was really jonesing for some raggedj art/creativity!

I wondered about the whole camera toss thing and droppage. I suppose that you could always tether it to yourself.

I think the whole fear of droppage is what makes it so exhilirating (besides, my hands are never more than 6 inches from the camera...its a little toss, not necessarily a big one!)
