Do We Have Your 2009 Lost Camera (Or Camera Card)? – Look Here & Respond By 01/13/10

The fine volunteers at Playa Info take great care of all the found items, including cameras and memory cards from Burning Man and SF Decompression. A small sampling of images from each of these items from 2009 are posted at the link below, with accompanying lost item inventory numbers, as in “09-###-G”.

Peruse the images. If not your personal images, maybe you’ll spot those belonging to a friend? The people who camped next door? Stranger things have happened.

  • Did you lose a camera?
  • Did you lose just a camera card?
  • Maybe a whole bag or backpack with a camera inside?

Visit this Flickr Set.

Twenty-four web photo pages of dusty, smiling burners!

If you spot your images, email lostandfound (at) burningman (dot) com and include:

  • The camera/card or bag inventory number
  • A description of the make and model of the lost camera/card, or bag.
  • A description of other (non-posted) images from the same source.

Hurry: we end preceding-year found item return efforts when regular tickets go on sale mid-January for the current year. Yes, that means we’re done with 2009 items on January 13th, 2010.

Here’s to happy reunions [para_end]
