A closer shot would have sealed the deal tightly.

Bathe yourself in gold-dust then i'll believe you're filthy rich.

If three legs are better than two, they why not put the camera on a buffalo or maybe even a centipede

This is stupid. Every photographer knows that a blurred image is the result of shaky hands, not the stability of your legs. A tripod exists so that any human movement like breathing and shaking are "out of the picture". DOES IT SELL?: NO.

This where not published, at least I've never seen it on any magazine or newspaper here in Chile.
Sad to copy just and not publish it.

Good idea, but I think it would be better to stabilize hands rather than legs. Need to be reworked.
