A very nice freelance photographer, Aram Boghosian, shot this photo at Daily Grommet. It's running in the Boston Globe today. We were a little worried about how it would turn out. You see, the poor man was hit with a strong case of the hiccups just before he started shooting. We tried a bunch of old-home remedies, to no avail. So....we are grateful he got off a pretty clear shot between hiccups.
But even funnier, after we tested the fizz-making power of the SodaStream, we added some grapefruit flavor to make soda. I shook the bottle a little too enthusiastically, and the just-mixed pink concoction exploded out of the bottle when opened. At the loud fire-off, our poor photographer hit the deck. As Aram picked himself off the ground he good-naturedly quipped,
I think I just failed the first test of photo journalism. Imagine what I would have done if real bullets were flying!
