As You Wish


On our recent trip to the La Brea Tar Pits, my brother-in-law decided to roll down a steep hill. As I photographed his journey, my first thought was “This will make a great black-and-white series.” My second thought was, “Ouch! That looks painful!” Fortunately, my first thought was correct and my second thought wasn’t. When I showed my oldest son the original images on the camera, he looked at his uncle and quoted The Princess Bride, “As you wish!”

  1. This is probably what the dinosaurs were doing when they suddenly found themselves stuck in a puddle of black tar. Fortunately, there was no sticky doom at the end of this story.
