COOL! I've photographed people for a publication with their VERY YOUNG children in fields as if the animals were pets..........as you know, THEY'RE NOT! I was LIVID!
People don't seem to realize the danger they're putting themselves, let alone their children in. Fortunately nothing happened, but it could've. I'm glad the publication actually RAN the photos with a story on safety.
I hate I'll miss this mtg. because I want to know the rules. I know they're only protecting people from themselves, but imagine what the cove would look like if everyone that visited walked into the fields....trails everywhere!
Okay, I'll get off my soap box now. Have a great time and hopefully I'll be able to join y'all!
