At the last LHSA meeting (Lutheran High School of America:) someone did a great
presentation on "Kit's" which is a word to describe the cameras photogs "wore"
over the years; Leica's with Nikons being the predominant Motif. They had them
as I recall displayed on dummies with no heads. No Shalom Harlow.
But my point here is (how often do the Nikons and Leicas crash into each other)
without the straps we have no kit. We are not wearing our cameras and such a
statement is not being made. I think of Dennis Hopper in Apocalypse Now.
