040 - Mount Rushmoose

Where's Dim Sum? #040 - Mount Rushmoose


Dim Sum quietly eyes the heavy accessories these creatures wear. What pains beasts are willing to suffer for fashion!


When my ex Jon and I lived in Newfoundland, Canada, we used to go on walks up the hills behind our apartment. One day, on our way up the hill, we turned around a bend, and a moose was standing right in the middle of the trail. The moose stopped chewing when it saw us, but we didn't move and eventually, it started chewing again.

Jon, fortunately (or maybe unfortunately), had a disposable camera with him, and he probably wanted to show off at work how close he got to a moose. So, in spite of my whispered pleas to "let's go," he started taking pictures of the moose with the camera going click-click, click-click. And he moved closer and closer and closer. Click-click. Click-click.

The camera might as well have been on a loudspeaker. Everything was so quiet, except for the clicking of the camera. Well, at least until it was replaced by thundering hooves that chased us down the hill.

Needless to say, we survived the adventure. But we lost the camera.

I wanted this to be a lot brighter but the face on the mountain would get washed out, so I had to find a balance.
