    Would anyone be willing to travel in the envelope with the cameras?
    You could bring that aforementioned whip and we may just get this home by Christmas...

    If you saw a man drowning and you could either save him or photograph the event...what kind of film would you use?

    Seahawks won Superbowl XLVIII.
    Next year's Superbowl is XLIX. Easier to pronounce than XLVIII. Sounds like XLAX.
    I hope that doesn't mean we won't be able to stop the run...

    A curious story...

    A few weeks ago I bought a Sure Shot 130u from a seller on ebay, who then sent it to a customer in Canada by misteak. The Canadian received the package and sent it back to me a little over a week ago. (The hilarious part is the seller is just 30 miles north of me!) I'm thinking there's something cursed about Sure Shots in the Canadian Post.

    Maybe the curse isn't on the Sure Shots or the Canadian post... :o

    From now on... the camera will be sent to the HQ of the RCMP and the said photographic instrument will be hand carried across the Canadian tundra by said RCMP offeeecer by dawg sled to each and every Canadian participant. The said participant will have 25 minutes to select, compose, and shoot his and/or her image...

    Tough love?

    I'm confused...(too many bumps on the head tonight)...is Walter the last known person to have had the camera in hand? Has he sent it yet? Maybe it's tied up in U.S. customs for all we know.

    I like the idea that by the time this round comes to a close, we won't have the foggiest idea of what we took a picture of in the first place.

    On a serious note, I know that people are eager to get the camera, but pressure is a funny thing, especially when you have one shot to take an image based on a theme. I could have taken any number of good pictures easily within a day or two, but trying to focus on a "cornerstone" (whatever that is) and have a decent shot come out meant that it took longer than anticipated to get something that I was happy with. Perhaps in the future we could be clear about time limits from the beginning, or have an optional theme, or send several cameras based on geographical areas (not that that's helped us much in this case) with photographers shooting 2 or more pictures in each camera, or have a camera with a limited number of frames (12 on 120 film) for the round. Just some ideas from a LASOC newbie.

    Now, time to get back to the whips and entrails...

    I always took 'cornerstone' to be optional, as in if I don't have something pertinent ready to go when the camera gets here (I don't) then I'll shoot something else, taking care not to be too haphazard about it.

    Lets All Shoot One Camera rather loses its meaning if we send a camera to Europe, a camera to North America, a camera to the Pacific, and so on, but I like the idea of signing on half as many people and giving us all TWO shots. The round should (!) go faster, and the next round can happen sooner. But then, like you, I'm a LASOC noob.
