I know how you feel about that Greg. Many times I did not have a camera on hand (Before smartphone days).
Some locations have a 'no picture' policy, or sometimes time does not permit.
Back in the day, I came upon a 'wheel' made from 2" EMT on a jobsite that another EC was working in for the tenant. It looked perfect, sitting on the guys gang box. It was about the diameter of a Peterbuilt steering wheel.
