Canon G7 missing some screws

Picked up an older Canon G7 with some scuffs and missing a couple of screws for under a hundred bucks a while back. On the outside it doesn't look like much but inside it works just fine. The who-ha about the G7 was it didn't have a flip out screen or save in RAW format any more. The Canon G series had both in it's prior history. But the G7 started a run of semi-pro point and shoots that were legendary. The 9, 10, 11, 12 and now the 15. I've had most of those at one time or another (all gone by now) but I still have the 7, which lacks saleable cred. The University of Arkansas in Fayetteville is my city, so to speak. It's a place I occupy and document what I see. Some call it voyerism others call it street shooting. There is a history of such shots documenting the photographer's environment. Eudora Welty in 1930s New York comes to mind. She was an artist and I am a hack. So here are some pumped up hack shots I took one dreary winter's day with a Canon G7 missing a couple of screws.
