Anxiety Attack

Okinawa, Japan

This was taken at the bullfighting championships in Ishikawa City. This photograph brings back memories of the day I was almost killed by a bull that came close to scaling the low fence into my lap. I fainted when I saw this one-ton thing hovering over me, and some kind stranger pulled me to safety. For those who are interested, this is a short video from television of the attack -- you can actually see me being knocked down by the bull http://www.imagestation.com/album/pictures.html?id=4290172143&idx=1 (I think you have to download the video to view it) and a photo from the paper showing a similar incident that occurred the same day http://www.pbase.com/image/39150675.
