This past Saturday, I went shooting in MacArthur Park / Westlake district. It is one of the highest crime infested areas in L.A. My wife hates me going out there as Cameras are the enemy and few if any are ever seen.
As luck would have it, I had just put down my ME SUPER with a Tokina 28mm lens on a bench while I sat down to rest and some guy that ran like a Gazel came by and snatched it up. It was less than 5 seconds and it was gone just like that.. I had already shot two rolls of Ilford XP-2 and was on my third. Anyway, it is a very difficult place to shoot at but ended up with a few decent pictures. Here are two of the ones I liked. Thanks for looking.

Thank you very much. There are many places I like to shoot in where there is a real possibility of getting robbed. That is why I will only take equipment that if it where to get stolen, It would not kill me. I had 3 me supers, now I have two.
My next ghetto cam for those areas is a Canon Ftb I have. Big and clunky, but works well.

Javier, the bad thing is the camera was worth more to you than him. He might get a hit of crack for it, because that's all its worth to these low-lifes. Stay safe!
