Photography Challenge with Sue Karski

Week 19 – #38 Selfie

on December 6, 2014

38 - Selfie-1

38 - Selfie-2

Well, you really didn’t think that you would get me to do a selfie did you?

Now walking a wire is one thing, but he makes it look easy – so much so that he stopped to do this.   At Nik Wallenda’s walk over the grand opening of Sarasota Ford, he managed to stop and take a selfie.  If you look closely at the cropped shot you will just about see a face with a white boundary above the face (that is the reflection of the dealership).

    Amazing shots, so neat you can see his picture on his phone!

      Thank you – I used my 400 mm lens but still it was cropped in. I had not thought to bring the 1.4 extender. As it was I had way too much lens for a number of things there.

    When I read about this in the newspaper, I knew you would be there doing your “selfie.”

    With the tripod, lens and your good eye, you got a great one! Especially when zoomed in to see what is really on the phone!

    I am struggling with the Selfie topic as well, perhaps I can be as clever as you. Gary

    Great photo and clever idea! I would love to see all of Nik’s “selfies” on his phone!

    • Sue Karski says:

      Thank you. I would be afraid to take my phone up on a wire like that. I jump when my phone rings. The other thing would be I might drop it. And when I drop things I tend to reach for them to try to catch them….doesn’t sound like a good idea for him.

    Love it…great shot !!!

  8. Your images of Wallenda at the dealership are excellent. I knew I could count on you to document the event and I wouldn’t have to fight the crowd and parking to see him. lol

    • Sue Karski says:

      Thank you. You are too funny. If it wasn’t for Diane I might not have gone. The crowd was not too bad and parking was easy. The key was to go early as they had other performers to see and free food and drink. We walked around and then sat down inside the dealership until it got close to the time. We walked outside and found a spot to stand. I had a longer lens so I stayed back and Diane went up closer. She got to see a couple of performers that we in the back could only see their feet when they stood on their hands. Lol

    When you are really good at something, part of the reason is being resourceful. Obviously, you are both.

  10. Sue Karski says:
