Accidents do Happen
Its inevitable, we cant help it at some point in our lives we have accidents some worse than others, its human nature, we aren't perfect.
This was a 1.8m framed image of the Milky Way galactic core rising over Mudjimba Beach titled endless. It was purchased by the awesome owners of Forty Winks at Kawana.
For such a large framed print i use a bracket technique to hang it. My bracket on the back of the frame and on the wall where in place. I climbed up the ladder and sat the large, heavy frame onto the bracket. Everything seemed fine so i climbed back down the ladder to check if i had it centred. As soon as i turned around i watched the frame fall from about 2m onto the ground and smash into hundreds of pieces.
I thought it had locked in, but was obviously only balancing on top of the brackets on about 2mm of metal. Next time i will make sure i push it back against the wall until it locks in.
We learn from our mistakes and this one was extremely costly :(
