Mashable: 2 black bears cozied up to a hiker but she just wasn’t having it.

Don’t be scared.” She *should* have scared it. It needs to stay away from humans. Bears need roughly 20,000 calories to fatten for winter, and this is prime bear time. For god’s sake, don’t offer it food or drink. The result of this encounter, for this bear ... means being put down.

Kelby: Desert Fashion Shoot (with behind the scenes pics and video).

You can have all the equipment in the world, but without people, you’re lost. Notice, in a windy location, there’s one live person for every lightstand. In spite of sandbags. You can’t risk anyone (esp. a model) getting hit in the head.
