Have you ever lost anything (well, of course, you have, I suppose), but did you ever find the lost stuff back? It must have been a pleasant feeling. Anyway, what if you lose your camera or mobile device (without any tracking chip) – what would you do then – TRY HARDER TO FIND IT OR WEEP OVER A FRIEND’S SHOULDER OR JUST LET IT GO? I know it would be hard to decide, after all, it depends where did you lose your stuff, and here’s great news, an Australian author, Andrew McDonald, recently lost his camera, and he made a much more memorable and moving request for unselfishness.
Andrew McDonald writes in his blog, “Have you lost your camera recently? Mislaid it somewhere in a national park? Left it in a taxi? Dropped it in the gorilla pit? Anyone can be a victim of the thoughtlessness and/or sleepiness that can lead to Camera Loss.” Furthermore, he continues, “‘How can I prevent Camera Loss?’ I hear you ask, wishing I’d get to the point. Well, you can’t prevent cameras from getting lost, but you can do something so your camera can be found very soon after it has vanished.”
Tipping over preventing camera loss, Andrew McDonald suggested, “All you have to do is take some photos – which you never delete from your camera – so when someone finds your camera at the bottom of the gorilla pit they can locate you and return the lost property to its rightful owner. To illustrate just how you can safeguard your camera from the crippling effects of Camera Loss, here are the pics that I always keep on my camera.”
I doubt who would resist such a productive way of requesting help? I would head straight down the post office to get that camera back to its rightful owner (and you too).
What do you think? Could you use this handy tip to getting a lost camera (or mobile device) back? Do you still have a separate camera, or do you only use your phone now? Let us know your thoughts beneath the post!
