Canterbury Woods – Buffalo, New York
This was a quick turn-around shoot from Boston to Buffalo and back again, all in a day.
I was asked to capture a few views of a clubhouse and cottages built a few years back by EGA Architects. Flying with photo equipment is always an adventure and this time was no exception. With all the stories of TSA not allowing tripods as a carry-ons I decided to check it. So, in order to protect the tripod, and my arm, I picked a bag that was light and small. The tripod I used has nuts that you can loosen which allows you to remove the lower legs making it shorter so it would fit in the bag I decided to use. When I retrieved the bag in Buffalo all was fine except the bolts that hold the legswere missing. Yes, completely missing. I thought initially that they must have fallen out in the bag but No. Then I thought that TSA must have searched it and put the loose bolts in a zipped portion of the bag. Nope. I check at home were I removed the legs and no bolts. All I can think is TSA removed the tripod peices out of the bag and sent them trough the scanner separate and the bolts fell out in the scanner? Thankfully, I was still able to use the tripod by force fitting the legs into place. The adventures of travel!
