Gremlins are stealing my lens cap.
Or there is a secret society devoted to procuring as many lens caps as possible.
Perhaps there is a magical gateway in my pockets and gear bags that lead to a secret Narnia-like land where there is just a massive pile of lens caps.
Seriously, when I get to the end of a photo shoot or a wedding or an event I am photographing, there are at least five minutes where I am looking for my lens caps. Where did I put them? I thought I put them in the outside pocket of my camera bag.
No? Pants? Nope! Jacket or coat pockets? Not there either…
Most likely, I just have a penchant for misplacing them. But, the thing is, I will go back and check the same spots a second or third time and somehow the lens cap is there…
Makes me think there actually is a magical portal…or gremlins…
Either way, I carry around a few of these universal lens caps from KURVD just in case I need them.
