She probably lost it while visiting Nuenen last Tuesday

thank you Chris, materialising thats what happened to me the other day.

This may sound all illogical to the rational mind.

I thought i had lost my sparebattery to the D3 which is quite large, hard to overlook.

Emptied my camera bags thoroughly many times, searched everywhere, no find.

Lo and behold the next day, on a blank and empty mind, it was just there in my walking bag.

I must admit i have had similar experiences in my life, yet it still amazes me..

sounds very familiar Fons... I guess some things just happen to be able to do short trips to a parallel universe... no other explanation for this ;)
