    I was mountain biking on saturday and had a nice accident.

    I tore two tendons and dislocated my shoulder. The shoulder popped back into place on the trail but is a complete AC separation. I have attached links to pictures to show you how it happened and what my shoulder looks like now.

    Enjoy!

    Shoulder now:

    Other shoulder, for reference:

    diagram of what happened (slightly embellished):

    Picture of my helmet:

    so, why post this in OTAP?




    I wanted to take some pics today since I can't do anything else, and I realized I can't lift the camera to my face... fml...

    Bummer. But from your amazing mspaint skills it looks like it could have been worse.

    You'll be fine. I dislocated the same section a few years back. It hurt for about 3-4 weeks, I couldn't even change the radio in the car cause it hurt to lift it. But now, it's still dislocated, and I was able to bench 300+lbs a few days back. And that nonsense that "it hurts when it rains" is bs, you'll be fine. No health insurance FTL.

    Hey, those shots are really noisy.

    and your highlights are blown.

    You really should try reshooting this with a shoot through umbrella or softbox and a lower iso.
