1} barclay and i went to his parents' house a couple days ago and went through boxes of his stuff from when he was in high school. i looked through his throw-away pile just in time to rescue an old guitar strap...which looked like it would make a completely wonderful camera strap. i modified it a tad and used some old keychains to attach it to my wee nikon and...shazaam. i just want to wear my camera everywhere now. to the grocery store, to banquets, to my friend's house... etcetera forever.
