    A gentleman has posted a note on the LF Forum about some LF lenses he found on a hiking trail near Seattle:

    In our troubled times it's refreshing to see someone with such a great attitude, making a considerable effort to help re-unite the equipment he found with its owner.

    I hope the owner see's his posts.

    I know I'd be sleepless if I lost a bunch of lenses somewhere outside... Very nice of the guy to make the extra effort to return them! :smile:

    I guess that would fall under "things we forget to do when shooting LF"..
    I would freak...Hope they get back to their owner.

    Very good of him.

    Most honest I ever got was when a shop assistant gave me change for a 20 when I know I only gave her a fiver ('cos that's all I had in my wallet) - had a sudden brainstorm and pointed out her error and gave back the extra 15 quid...

    And, I hereby nominate this for the Thread Title Of The Month award.... :wink:

    Cheers, Bob.
