Danger and waivers | Kirkland, WA Photographer

community, landscape, Other 2 Comments

I signed my life away to get this shot.  Oh what I won’t do for a little color.  : )

I visited Agua Verde with some fellow camera lovers on Saturday and glanced out their window to see a very large stash of kayaks.  You see, they also rent kayaks.  (AND, I am a kayak lover.)  I suppose that could be why they are named Agua Verde Cafe & Paddle Club?  Anyhow, I knew I wanted some sort of shot-I could feel it in my bones.  I finished my lovely lunch (a VERY lovely lunch) and headed down to the kayaks.  I was gingerly walking toward the pier and was stopped by a big STOP sign.  I was redirected to the rental counter and was told that I couldn’t get down there unless I was renting a kayak, was wearing a life jacket and had signed a waiver.  Believe it or not, I was ok with their answer but they must have liked my blue camera bag because a manager of some type said it would be ok if I signed the waiver.  I signed the waiver… then wished I had more equipment to REALLY get the shot (the vision I had in my head).

In case you are worried, don’t fear-I am still sticking with my personal project, Photo A Day.  Come visit my Flickr page and see what you think, leave a note!
