It's like having a little pet for your face.

This is why you should never launch before everything is ready.

I was staging a shot of a bike jump on my son's bike propped on a ramp built by a skateboard. The ramp slipped. So did the bike which isn't really designed to handle my weight anyways.
My son captured this single snap. I looked up and he had a look of absolute horror on his face until I asked "Did you get a photo of that?" He immediately turned to "That was so awesome!"
He managed to get the dirt kicking up and everything. All it cost me was a scraped knee and some wounded pride.
