Lost and Found
A couple months ago, I lost my Sandisk Clip mp3 player. The last time I saw it, it was plugged into our stereo upstairs. We had some people over including a bunch of kids so I am pretty sure I put it away somewhere for safekeeping, but I haven’t been able to find it. I also lost the center post to my compact tripod. Bay had removed it so that he could adjust the tripod really low to the floor for one of his stop-motion animation projects. I found the post once, and put it back on the tripod, but a few days later Bay worked on another project and removed it again. I vaguely remember taking the post and putting it somewhere safe. Well, you know how that goes!
So last night I decided to go room-by-room and search every inch for these two items. Unfortunately, my search came up empty. However, I did find a few other things that I had lost or forgot that I even owned! Firstly, I found my two “hanko” or signature stamps. My grandfather gave me one of them when I started painting back in my teens, and I picked up the other one during a visit to Hong Kong. I’ve been thinking of creating a watermark for photos using these, but didn’t know where they were. Secondly, I found a nice 72mm circular polarizing filter. I bought this around 1989 for an old zoom lens. My new 16-50mm lens uses this same filter size so that was a bit of a score.
I’m happy that I found these two things, but still kind of perplexed about where the mp3 player and tripod post could be. I checked all my pockets of all my clothes for the mp3 player, and then all the places that I would think I would put the tripod post for safe-keeping but no dice.
