    Personally, I think it would look fabulous as a conversation piece in a certain coffee shop.... ;)

    Love the idea but the insurance would be astronomical. However, I will bring some of my collectibles to the shop for a one-month exhibit.

    Agreed - the insurance would be killer for something that's just sitting there. *sigh* Insurance.....

    Love the idea of your cams gracing the walls, though. It's going to stir up some very fun chats with your customers, no doubt.

    I put out a display of my old Brownies and folders when I have an arts festival - not only does it draw folks into my booth, but they simply have a great time recalling these cameras in their own families - it's just a positive vibe all the way around. :)

    Now all you need is a little bitumen of Judea, and you too can take pictures just like M. Niepce!
