Social experiment: camera tied to bench

Friend linked this to me, found it pretty amusing. FTA:

I tied a disposable camera to a bench with a sign that read:

Good afternoon,
I attached this camera to the ben
ch so you could take pictures. Seriously. So have fun. I'll be back later this evening to pick it up.
Love, Jay / The Plug

When I retrieved the camera that night, I was happy to find that the entire roll of film had been shot. Below are the photos that were taken.

Trust me, I'm The Doctor.
I moved it to General.

I love the idea and a few of the pics were pretty good. The kids were cute.

Ha - what a great idea. It's really nice that people took normal photos and someone didn't just waste the entire film taking shots of the ground or something.

I want to try that one day!

That is cool. It would be cool to try it in several places.

I'd be worried some punk would cut the string and steal it though. Hopefully mankind isn't that messed up yet.

Thats a nice idea,restores some faith in humankind that it was not nicked or abused by kids with nothing better to do.
wonder if the guy stayed around to keep an eye on things.

Thats a cool idea, but all of those photos are pretty plain, why couldn't anyone make a funny face or anything.

But it's a great idea. But I wouldn't try it, because I know people around here would steal the camera, or damage it.
