can you coax a stranger to be honest?

I wish I would have thought of this idea myself before that fateful day on the plane when I lost my camera and NEVER had it returned to me.  I saw an idea on The Nate Berkus Show that I thought was pretty great.  You take a few pictures of yourself (see below) and leave them on your camera.  If someone finds your camera, they will inevitably look at the pictures on there and these will “tug on their heartstrings and encourage their morality.”  Who knows if it would have worked for me, but when I buy my new camera, I’m doing this FOR SURE. . . just in case.  Of course, Patrick might require me to have the camera chained to me with a lock and key every time I take it out of the house, so maybe this wouldn’t be necessary!

Yeah, I still feel bad you lost your b-day present too. Great idea though. I'm hoping mine will get taken so I'll have an excuse to get a new camera.

What a great idea! I will certainly do that on my new camera.
