Diamond at the Bottom of the Drain
by Adam Baker
While taking this shot, a guy right beside me proposed to his lady friend, it was cute - she said yes. They asked me to take a couple photos of them...and I obliged. The bride-to-be wanted a close up of the ring and as she took the ring off (why, I'll never know) it slipped out of her fingers, hit the top of the barrier, bounced, fell off the other side onto a very small patch of grass just inches before a rather long drop to the bottom of the gorge. Yikes. The ring was carefully recovered by the groom, and I doubt the bride has taken the ring off since.
