On Location: The “Breaking Bad” Shot

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are publishing a series of Bob’s “On Location” stories.

TheTutuProject_Motorhome

Location: Primm, Nevada. Home of what used to be the one of the tallest roller coaster in the world at 225 feet.

Scenario: Dirt road behind and west of Buffalo Bill’s Casino, Storm Looming. Me: Perfect location, awesome bullet ridden motorhome, the perfect storm.

 

Me: I must set up my camera… I must shoot FAST, storm getting closer.

Me: Storm is here, 50 mph winds, pouring rain on my very expensive rental camera.

Me: I must run to my rental car and dry off my very expensive rental camera. Oh Sh*t! the road is turning into a wash and is flash flooding.

Growing up in the desert I should know that this is not the right place to be!

Me: I must drive real fast on the high side of the road and do THE most stupid thing I could possible- cross the wash!! I was in a rental car after all and my drivers ed. teacher was Mr. Brady so I could handle anything!

Me: I am one lucky cat to make it out of there alive! At least I got the shot though:-)

Disclaimer: NO ONE SHOULD EVER ATTEMPT ANYTHING I JUST DESCRIBED HERE, EVER!!

    That’s some scary stuff Bob!  An Arizona boy should know better than to cross the wash . . . silly, silly TuTu!
