If Found...

This guy has it figured out. I keep seeing people on Facebook adding pages in order to reunite cameras with their owners via their random collection of pictures. This joining the entire populous in a massive game of Six Degrees of Separation in order to reunite the pair. However, you've got to admit, if you found this pre-emptive 'if lost' guide you'd end up with a huge grin on your face and email him straight away...unless you were the one who stole it. In that case you're probably feeling pretty pleased with yourself and the grin is more likely to be mocking smugness...

Andrew McDonald - the genius behind this series of photos - is an author from Melbourne and this is his "Pictorial Guide to Avoiding Camera Loss" which he blogged about at the end of last year. My sister sent me a link to these photos this morning, and it made me instantly smile and search out his blog and it's witty and insightful and I particularly like his recent post titled "How to Kiss" based on the bizarre outcomes of predictive Google searching. Who knew the world was so concerned with kissing technique?

Only one problem now with adding a pictorial guide to my camera...I hate having my photo taken! Time to get creative!
