I used to like to ride all the scary stuff at theme parks and the  
state fair. I didn't like carry dangling camera on the rides, and I  
sure as hell wasn't leaving it with a ride operator.

Rather than feel completely naked without a camera or miss that once- 
in-a-lifetime shot, I bought an Olympus XA that took very serviceable  
photos and fit neatly in a shirt or pants pocket.

There is life without a Leica hanging around your neck.
