Charlie Thomas worked as a whitewater rafting guide in the 80s. His boss became obsessed with selling photos of clients taken while they ran the rapids. The only problem was getting the film back across the river and into town to be developed before the clients returned.

    Great story. I always wondered how those pigeons started delivering photos.

    Great Job! So far I have only heard Charlie’s story. I love that you can hear laughter and excitement in his voice, but also you do a great job of editing/pacing – including your voice and music. Also, I like the pigeon graphic and info. Thanks, looking forward to more.
