Never assume!!!

In the paraphrased words of Rory "Never assume your surroundings are safe. Make them safe."

In a location you have not secured or cannot for certain guarantee its safety, you should always be on alert. Pay attention to what is around you. Be aware of potential hazards or dangers. Do not put yourself i a precarious situation. Always have a plan of escape.
Never assume that because you mean no harm that others will feel the same way you do.

I don't know what happened to this photographer but one thing I am sure of, is that mama gorilla is not happy about someone paying so much attention to her babies.

Be smart, stay safe.


  1. Assume makes.... an Ass of U & Me... a bit lame but also on point.

    Fair point also on the picture.... but it looks to be a photo shop, trees look Northern Hemisphere, the adult looks like a male Silver back, which get big but not that big, that's Yeti or Sasquatch big...
    Photographers and cameramen in my experience can be a very focused version of what many people do, WYSIATI, What you see is all there is. They are so busy looking through the eye piece they forget there are things beyond it, dangerous things

  2. It is Photoshopped but I loved using it to make a point. Love the acronym. Thanks for sharing.

    I always say the same thing about "assume"... :)
