I had a asthma attack for this by JDAWG9806 I had a asthma attack for this by JDAWG9806
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:
Stupid me, I knew I shouldnt of tried to get a better shot of the train going over the Kankakee in the horrid summer heat, but I really wanted to. I was wheezing before I crossed the tracks, but I thought I could still make it up the steep hills, which I did. On the way down it happened, I had a heat induced asthma attack and no inhaler, I was able to make it across the tracks before I started to pass out, and would of ended up in the hospital, but Eric ran to the car and got some water bottles to at least keep me from over heating and getting heat stroke, luckily it didnt get worse, and we left and chilled at BK in Wanatah for awhile.

I just wish the sun didnt hide behind the cluds and overexposing the shot, but I don't care.

That is an amazing shot! The train is perfectly centered, nice colors, and like you said, I wish the Sun and sky were there, but it didnt bother me to much. To think you had an asthma attack after this was truly inspiring for people like me who also suffer Asthma. =)

I dont know whether you're devoted, or crazy, or somewhere in between, but looking at this shot tells me that either way it was probably worth it because it looks awesome. and remember, what doesn't kill us makes us stronger; unless you have a heat stroke in which case you're screwed, luckily you avoided a heat stroke and still got the shot, and for that I applaud you.

Isn't it weird? Some of our best works involve in either being sick, depressed, worried or other emotions instead of being happy.

You risked your life for your art! (My daughter has asthma and I also carry an inhaler, for allergy induced breathing problems -- I know how it can be.)

Anything to get the shot, and I'd say you did well enough.

I feel better now, I was discussing 17R with a friend wondering if it will take the Chicago line or NKP it takes different routes a lot.
