The subject line is a paraphrase from an interview in a photography magazine. Very good advice.
My mouth would still be hanging open if I were Andy Willsheer, a UK photographer who had an out-of-control dragster (driven briefly by Steve Gasperelli, until physics took over) land practically in his lap!
You can see Willsheer in most of the clips here; just at the 7-second mark, he's standing behind a low concrete barrier wall, lower-left.
The man's photos of the encounter are nothing less than astonishing!
The write-up has some details wrong; the car's not going anywhere near "250 miles per hour." I'm guessing under 40, myself.
