    We can do it fellow APUGGers!

    Well it isn't a ITAH story,but it's strange

    I was shooting with a M645 down in Canal Street,taking pictures down one street and going over to the next block when a large beefy fellow comes running up to me and says "Hey you're not a cop are you? I say "no I'm not." He gets closer and asks again if I'm a cop. I tell him that I'm just a tourist. Then he says "That's ok then",and walked away.
    I don't know what was going on-but I didn't see anything in the slides when I ran them off.
    Maybe that's a good thing

    No longer an ITAH virgin!

    I whip out my Rolleicord.

    "Sore wa Hasseruburado desu ka?", I'm asked in Japanese.

    "Iie. Roraikodo desu yo." (And this guy is a professional photographer, of all things.)

    There's nothing quite like the first time.

    Anyone else out there been asked in something other than their native tongue?

    I was asked by Dutch woman once when I was shooting in the flower market in Amsterdam with a Mamiya TLR, "is that a Hasselblad, the Dutch lady who was with me told me what she said and translated for me, I replied "no, it's a Mamiya a poor man's Hasselblad"

    I got the ITAH while running a photo booth at a local art fair last weekend. It was a 4x5 Crown Graphic with a Polaroid back . . .

    Once I was out shooting with my Hasselblad and a curious bystander asked what camera I was using, when I told him it was a Hasselblad he just stared at me with a blank expression, total anticlimax

    No, but once I was assembling my Klepper (17' foldable kayak) at a lake, and a bus-load of Japanese tourists happened by (this was in Spokane during the Worlds Fair -- 1974, I believe), and I was asked, "May I have picture for memory, please?"

    I thought it was a nice way to ask.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    I would worry more if they asked if it was supposed to be stereoscopic
