Jimmy, John and Jackie Jump

Randomly one day when I was 20, my good friend asked, ‘would you ever go skydiving?’ Not thinking too seriously about it, I said, ‘yeah!’ A few months later, she took me for my 21st birthday.

It was amazing. So amazing, that I went again. And again. And yesterday, again, again.

This time though, jump 4, I duct taped a camera to my hand. I am a photographer, after all. Had to get my own shots. Between stills, I shot some video…

Some notes to consider:

•Jimmy is 60. He rules.

•Eppie, the guy who saved my life, is a bomb diffuser in the Navy. Has done 3 tours and has jumped 1,657 times. He rules.

•John just breathes and he rules.

I’ll get back to the regularly scheduled programming and do a post with images soon. This was just too good, I had to share.
