Oh my. I haven't used a disposable camera in a long time. I didn't realize how feather touch the shutter was. I wound, went to get out of my car to take a shot... And took a picture of the messy inside of my car instead. Quickly wound and tried to get the shot I wanted but i think i was late.
Well. Um. Darn. So much for an interesting pair of shots from me. I hope the rest do better!
I'm looking forward to seeing the inside of Brian's car .

LOL, me too. Will be kinda funny going from two pics of the Snoqualmie Valley to pics of the inside of Brian's car...

But I CAN show pictures of how Camera 7e looked like the 1hour and 55 minutes it was in my hands. And that might be good, since we probably must start a criminal investigation of where the mail lost this thing, since it hasn't shown up on the Isle of Wight yet!
I wonder if the inside of his car is cleaner than mine? Feather touch is right. But, what else should we expect from such a precision piece of machinery?

Update on Camera 7e
Camera 7e is MIA, since inadvertedly, an old address did sneak in before send-off.
So apparently the euro-camera is now lost somewhere in the UK, in the hands of Royal mail.
Today I was at my local post office and sendt off a formal request to trace the letter, if possible, and have it sendt back to me. If it shows up, I now have the right address, and will repack and send off in a better option than I did choose the last time (traceable).
Steve offered to cover the extra postage, but I respectfully decline that, if it shows up here, I feel this is a matter of honor for me, to get it safely to the next contender.
I dunno if it is possible to trace this from the other end, but the special branch that does these things in the Norwegian mail goes under the name of the Sherlock Holmes-branch, and they solve mysteries like this every day, so my hopes are still high that we will be able to solve this.
What puzzles me is how the damn yankees and the not-so gentlemanly southerners was able to get to Sile's computer and mix up the addresses among us europeans, most likely it goes to show their omnipresent heavy hand!
Thanks for that Erik.. it's a lot of bother to have gone to, I know, so I really appreciate it.
As for the US infiltration of my computer.. I have to admit I've always been somewhat suspicious of Tim (in San Jose)'s loyalties.. He was shooting from the other hip this time round from Aachen in Germany.. and then flying over Ireland to get back the the San Jose in the US of A..
Methinks he may just have done some computer hacking while over Irish waters...
Those Americans.. you just can't turn your back on them for one minute!
If you saw a man drowning and you could either save him or photograph the event...what kind of film would you use?
I think those Americans and Canadians somehow hacked into my computer and changed the function of the 'submit message' key so it deleted my new address message instead of sending it.
I will see if our Post Office can do a trace of the parcel but I'm not too hopeful. We're not very good at that sort of thing over here!

The momentum of the North American camera has shamed the ROTW camera into hiding. It has given up hope. To save its self-esteem, it might latch on to a Chinese tourist and find it's way into some remote Communist village, never to be seen by ape huggers again... or not.
