| p.2 #13 · Ever have your gear stolen at a wedding? |
Wasn't a wedding, but I was a guest at a graduation and had my camera with me. I sat down to eat, set my camera on the table in front of me, turned my back to the table for a split second to talk to someone, turned around and it was gone. Sony a700 and 50mm f1.4.
Turns out that the venue had hired a photographer of their own for the occasion, and the manager had assumed that I had stolen my camera from the photographer. When I turned my back, the manager snuck in and yanked it. When he brought it to the photographer, the guy said he didn't shoot Sony...
That manager then had to send out an apology to the entire guest list. Fortunately I was able to get the stuff back only two days later, but I can't help but wonder. How do you see a camera in someone's hand and just assume that they had stolen it?
