Anyone who lacks the guts to keep on using a camera because others make fun of it is rather weak kneed I beleive.
I have a brother-in-law who is an MD..now retired. In the late 70's he bought a brand new Lincoln Continental. White with maroon upolsterly, it was a gorgeous car..just stunningly beautiful. When I saw him 3 months later the Lincoln had been replaced by a Mercedes. I asked him why he had rid himself of the Lincoln. He answered because the other doctors laughed at it.
