Yesterday at the Rocky Mountain Balloon festival in Colorado Springs, it happened FOR A SECOND TIME with my Mamiya C33. I told him it was a Mamiya. He wondered what year and I told him 1964, and we were immediately separated by 2 guys dragging a rope to stretch out a 2nd wave balloon. It came between us and I never saw him again.
A little later, a woman came by. Judging by her equipment she seemed to really have her digital act together, and she said, "Now there's challenge!" I gave her a big smile and nod and thought, "That's somebody who GETS it".
