Timing & Precision

FallenFor the most part, I use my iPhone to create images from the happenstances of daily life. http://markmushetphotography.tumblr.com/ But occasionally things arrive with such little warning and demand a greater degree of precision and timing…and a better camera/lens combination. After a recent windstorm ripped through BC and caused an incredible amount of damage there was a very tall tree across the way from my apartment that remained standing, seemingly unaffected. But several days afterwards it dropped a wounded bough on the power lines and caused a blackout in my neighbourhood. Soon enough, city arborists discovered it was rotten and in need of bringing down. So one sunny fall morning I awoke to the sound of chainsaws. At 7am I reached for my Canon 5D with a 100mm macro and went out on the balcony. The rainbow effect on the falling bough was not added and a split second later the workman pulled the chainsaw blade away. It seems the two of us were working a fine line that morning.
