Grab your camera even it is some distance away from you if your company happen to be on fire? Or you bochap, run for life first?
I happen to bring my camera for morning sunrise shooting. I work in shift, so, ard 0730, the sun was nice and soft sometime. It happens yesterday and I got hold of some photos.
Nevermind that, I work in pair and my sup was on time off yesterday. Ard 1845, fire bell sounded. Since my company fire bell does testing sometime, I ignore it. My camera was on the table that time, with the external flash mounted. I thought it is just another bell testing and ignore it.
About 2 to 3 mins later, PA system announce that it is a real fire Left me inside the room and another guy inside the server room. One thing for sure, I am not sure where did the fire come from. 5 storey and no clue at all. I still take my time, keep the camera, bring my handphone along.
While downstair, there aren't any smoke but still got some ppl. When the fire engine came, we thought it is going to be a BIG fire and I thinking in my heart, why I didn't bring my camera? Esp with 5 BIG fire engine, 3 small one comes. I thought, wow, should have brought the camera since so many fire engine been seen in my life. (Btw, est figure but roughly there)
In the end, there aren't any fire maybe due to the auto extinguish(right spelling?) inside that room and the fireman pack up and go home (Situation look like those in SimCity4, ) Not much action else I will be crying home as without taken some first hand photo.
Anyway, I think that if I bring my camera down, I might not able to type this long msg as I might be in the hospital if that happens to be a BIG fire. But if I brought along and survive and got some nice photo if BIG fire, I am famous So, would you care for your life or your camera first?
