D'oh!

While it wasn't a Snowpocalypse-level boondoggle, a Georgia State University film project got way more exposure than intended this week, resulting in the highly publicized detonation of a pinhole camera by the APD Bomb Squad, Petapixel reports. Turns out the perceived bomb/Diet Coke can camera taped to the 14th Street Bridge, which resulted in a massive headache for motorists on Monday, had an attached note explaining what it was and why it was there. GSU has since apologized for the misunderstanding and has assisted in the removal of 17 similar cameras taped throughout the city. Let's award an F in photography to whoever thought duct tape and cylindrical devices would be no cause for alarm in this day and age.
