Vol Fan's heart skips a beat when he sees Pita or AB with my camera. Granted - it's not a cheap camera to replace if something should happen to it. I'm of the opinion that it is far more likely that I'll be the one to drop it. Plus they know the rules: Be careful. Always have the strap around their neck. Etc.
My heart sings when I see them with my camera. The thought that they are interested in my hobby makes me smile. Plus they take some wonderful shots. Pita took this one over the weekend.
