Tragic incident

Being a photographer means you often get special access to great events, but the other day it all went horribly wrong. A new exhibition called 'Walking with dinosaurs' was to be showcased at the O2 Arena in Greenwich, but it all went wrong when the adult T-Rex broke loose...moments later this little girl and the guy behind - trying to save her - both got eaten by the ferocious beast. I managed to hide under some stairs until the handlers got the creature under control. The rest of the pictures are just too horrific to show here.

However tragic this episode was, it did remind me of one of my favourite comic strips: Calvin and Hobbes!
