    A unusual question Colin, I wonder why you ask this question. Maybe
    you can start the ball rolling by telling us of a life-changing moment
    that you have experienced.

    Regards Brian

    What (serious or humorous) past or present life-changing moments
    you've experienced so far, would you most like to have (or have had)
    professionally captured on film properly or much better, that for some
    reason you didn't, or if you did or anyone did so for you, it was done
    in a very mediocre manner for some reason and please say why, for
    anything mentioned.

    I was in an ice storm taking pictures for a newspaper I was working for
    and I heard a loud Crack. I put my camera to my eye and shot two shots.

    First was the sparks flying and the second was the wire whipping away
    from the transformer. This was film. I had to wait until power was
    restored 2 says later to see what I got. it is one of my favorite
    "lucky" shots.

    I really wish someone had gotten a proper photo of my dismembered
    carcass after I was run over by the commuter train that one time. The
    cell phone photos at rotten dot com just don't do justice to the
    event.

    I hope that, next time that happens, there's someone with a decent
    dslr and a good eye for detail to capture the moment.

    This sounds like a competition question I've read today and I'll copy
    it here "Tell us in 25 words or less what life-changing moment, past
    or present, you would like to capture on film and why"

    The winner will have Jasin Boland fly to winner’s nearest capital city
    and photograph the winner, capturing the different episodes in their
    life... with family, children and pets. This session is valued at
    $5000. The lucky winner will also receive a Nikon D90 digital SLR
    camera, total prize value is $7000.

    How odd that the question seems so similar. Wouldn't it be lovely to
    win the Nikon D90 digital SLR camera.
    Cheers, Sue

    How strange. Why would I want to have myself and my family photographed
    in a city hundreds of miles away from my home, and which I almost never
    visit?

    Good grief, certainly not. I have never taken any of my family on a boink.

  10. Curious now about the "nearest capital city". Does that mean if the
    winner lives in Eastern Central California he has to go to Nevada's
    capital, Carson City, instead of Sacramento, the capital city of
    California? What if there's no air service to the desginated capital
    city? Does the capital city have to have a capitol?

    Does Jasin use a compact camera or DSLR? Brand? If the winner "will
    have" said Jasin fly to ....anywhere, nearest of not.....why should he
    or she have to bear the cost?

    If you are in California you are out of luck anyway, the only two
    countries that are covered are Australia and New Zealand.

    Oh. I was going to point out that although I'm in England, I'm a lot
    closer to Dublin and Cardiff than to London. Golly, look at that, I'm
    about equidistant from the capitals of Wales and Ireland, and also (a
    different) equidistant from the capitals of England and Scotland.

    I think your family would be both allowed and welcomed, but I do
    suggest prior clearance for the pet.

    I'll bet you're also about equidistant from the capitals of Australia
    and New Zealand. At least in practical terms. ;-)
