    Hi,

    I would like to share this and, hopefully, hear some of other folks strange requests...

    My Father has just moved house. My Father is a photographer. ( well he was in his day, he is now 80 odd years old )

    He is trying to capture a good image of some birds in his garden. According to dear old dad - The branches are all in the wrong place - The solution?...

    " Can you come around with your ladders, chop a branch off one part of the tree and then bolt it back on in the right place please? "


    Hmmmmmm!

    Regards.

    Zh

    Strangest request I've had is to take pictures of a french exchange student for his girlfriend, posing topless with a pair of pineapples.

    I always get people asking me to try and catch ghosts with my camera all thanks to one freaky (and still strangely unexplained) wedding picture I shot a few years ago and a friend with a big mouth who told everyone about it after I asked him not to.

    Zh2: Thanks for sharing. I am still chuckling. Having an elderly father, I can appreciate the difficulties you are experiencing. Being a photographer-wanna-be, I can appreciate your Dad's desire to have everything just right!
