So last night I was snapping shots in the city, when this teenager runs across and tries to grab my camera. Luckily I heard the footsteps and turned just in time to hang onto my camera. As he ran past he threw a punch at me, so I gave him a good whack with my small tripod. Anyway alls well that ends well, no damage done, he ran off before I could grab him though. But still, I live in Australia, which is supposed to be one of the world's low-crime places... From now on, I'm wrapping the camera cord several times around my wrist while shooting!
