Stories of Kindness from Around the World

A Camera With Baby Pictures

--by marcia_howell, posted Nov 6, 2007
I was walking in my neighborhood and found a very nice digital camera on the side of the road. 

To find the original owner, I put up signs in the neighborhood hoping someone would claim it, but nothing.  So I began looking through the pictures (luckily, it was digital). There were a year's worth of baby pictures, of an adorable little boy. And then on June 16 (they were date stamped) there were wedding pictures from a local park.  Lucky find -- I called the park office, and they had received a call from a bride that one of her brides' maids had lost her camera with wedding pictures on it!

The park arranged to get the camera to the bride so she could send it to the owner.  In the camera bag, I placed a "Smile" card.  I hope the owner finds a chance to tag the next person with a smile.
