We used to say that motto, "Be Repaired!" That would apply to the old M3 you'd carry if only Don Goldberg fixed it...

In most cases we who carry cameras save the world because 99.9999% of the time having a camera “NOTHING HAPPENS!”If we don’t have the camera all kinds of neat life moments are in our face and we end up banging our heads on the nearest wall because we stupidly left it home.EXAMPLE:On Monday at the convocation I had an M8 on my shoulder under the robes. JUST IN CASE! When the event was over and pictures were being taken, Henning Wulff offered me a Leica to hold . However I pulled mine out and surprised all, certainly the Chancellor and University President who couldn’t believe I had one all along…. JUST IN CASE!”Those of you who were boy scouts know the motto… BE PREPARED! And at most of our ages …”that doesn’t mean carrying condoms!” J Cameras!ted Thanks to everyone for looking and commenting. OK, the morning shot was from my house, so obviously the camera was at hand. But the evening one was while I was walking the dog. My wife sometimes makes fun of the fact that I walk the dog with a camera around my neck, but had I not had it, I would not had had that image. Incidentally, the same goes for the picture of the busty cafe-lady from the summer of 2002 which I posted in another thread. I was walking my dog and as always, the camera was around my neck. Sure, the girl was there every day that summer, but on that particular occasion she was in a particularly bubbly mood. Luck favours the prepared, or whatever that saying is.
