Last week I drove to a nearby town. The town is surrounded by tall hills and mountains, and you can have a very pleasant hike down any of the numerous trails there. Anyway, I was climbing one trail and enjoying the good weather when I saw what looked like a silver box. When I approached, I saw it was a digital camera!

It's a 3.3 mpixel powershot S20! Slightly scuffed, but otherwise fine. It rained the next day, so I was really lucky to get there when I did. When I got home, I also saw it had a 300 mb hard drive inside! This is like a 300 dollar value folks, I pity the fool who dropped it so carelessly. Anyway, just wanted to share. It also had some nice pictures on it, and I'm putting those up in this thread, hence the photos tag. I don't have my own hosting, so I resized these and compressed them to avoid straining good ol' image shack.

I feel bad for the guy, especially after taking those nice pictures and then losing his camera. You should've left it alone. :\

Nice camera, but turn it into the cops. If no one actually goes to get it, you get to keep it anyways, and if they do get it, well, it was theirs to begin with :)

so it would have been left exposed to the weather? I'd say he may never find the owner, but if he does, I'm sure the owner would be appreciative it took a while longer rather than to find his camera destroyed.

area: evil woods
weapon: spiritsbane
armour: dragonbone modified w/ resist paralysis
*attacked by slime level 3*
*killed*

edit: on a more serious note, there are some nice atmospheric shots in here. hell, you couldnt have left the camera there either, what would be the point of that. good catch, i guess.

Pretty awesome pics, but I'd feel kinda guilty taking the camera, even if the owner did lose it and will never find it again

well, probably a group friends planned to take some creepy pictures, one of em posed. in another shot "through the doorway" you could see the reflection of a person on the glass. these were planned pictures.

This is either a clever and very cool hoax on someone's part, or some freaky ass shit. Either way, I like it.

Heh,

I think you should really try and find the guy who did these and give him back his camera. He and his friends are awesome. These creepy as shots are priceless. Yeah....so give it back and find out where his website is/invite him to gaf.

You think it's some sort of new, Blair Witch style promotional campaign? Or just some guys having a laugh?

A guy created the original thread at SA, and it was a pretty big hit so people started copying it to see what other reactions they could get.
