LOST Canon S95. Photos seem on BM L&F Flickr

Postby iceneweb » Wed Oct 21, 2015 5:17 pm

Lost my black Canon S95 on the Saturday at BM 2015 near Center Camp. Since then I have submitted the online form to L and F (October 10th-ish).

My photos are in Flickr album 151733p. (The last photo is of the kind people who handed the camera in :) )

This is my last chance to get my camera and photos back, as I've heard nothing from L&F since submitting the form over two weeks ago. I appreciate that you are volunteers and extremely busy, and wonder if my case perhaps slipped through the cracks?

Thanks,
Mark Robbins

Hi Mark. Oooo I like that. Your new playa name. Highmark. Anyway Markie. WE are not the Lost and Found. They are real people in San Francisco. Reachable by contacting them directly through, (Ooo I like that too. A great contradiction.
Reachable by contacting them directly
but NOT directly, since I'm telling you to go 'through' something.) What? Oh yea. ...directly through the Burning Man website. Search around on there, good luck, and find a way to tell those nice folks that you're still waiting.

I bet you're wondering. If those people in San Francisco are real what are we? We are bunch of happy online, dysfunctional friends. We can't help you get your stuff back... That is of course unless we pull it out of a crack in..... the sidewalk when we are unpacking our dusty gear.

Sorry, I would give you a link to the L & F but it's really hard to locate. Kinda like being lost and I know you can do it.

Oh, how I enjoyed reading your reply, but how lost & found *I* feel now.

I have been to the website and the page you are referring to. I have filled out the form. I have sent emails! I really don't want to send any more emails, as that is a good way to clog the system up. So tantalising, and just out of reach when I can see my own photos . . . .

Thank again!

Marquee, (That's your NEW, new playa name), I loved your pictures. It was really hard deciding which person was you. After rejecting the cute girl I settled on the cute guy in the fabulous polka dotted pants. That's a great look. You were only in one of the pictures because it's your camera. I know you'll get it back and share some of the other photos with us.

Don't be like those nut-sacks that just drive by and beg for their stuff, never to be heard from again. Tell us how you finally got your package in the mail. Was it postage paid? Was it in bubble wrap. Was there a note? Show us pictures. Tell us stories. This is the slow season for eplaya. Andrew, don't send us to the corn field. Give us something.

Your not alone, I'm waiting also. I wish we could get just a little more into other than the auto reply, I feel as if I'm being a pest asking. I offered to help out, as I'm local, but didn't here back !!

Dreams do come true, kiddies. Yesterday I had an email conversation with someone rather comely at L and F Towers, with the conclusion that my camera will be speeding its way to me in a few days.

Have faith.

My camera came home, thanks to the hard work for the Burning team. The camera was run over by something :-( but the card works and the photo's were all intact. Thanks again to all involved and for all your hard work.
