I ran across this article on CNN.com this morning and thought in case you missed it, it deserves the widest dissemination possible. If you’ve ever lost a camera you know the heartbreak, and if you’ve ever found one, you know the mystery that stops you from just tossing it and forgetting about it. My friend Judy took a holiday in England this past April, and sadly left her camera behind in a taxi, and never found it before returning to the States. Maybe someone will eventually find this site and at least return the SD card. Cameras can be replaced, the photos are another matter. Come to think of it, I think I have an old camera that my boys brought home from a Boy Scout trip, and we never did find out who it belonged to. It’s an old instamatic, and I think still has a roll of film in it. I’ll guess I’ll get it developed and send in a couple shots and see what happens.
If the link on CNN goes away, the blog is at I Found Your Camera . Take a look through and see if you recognize anyone. One of the posters to the blog commented that they were now going to start putting little stickers on their SD memory cards with “ifoundyourcamera.com” on them. Not a bad idea.
