Another Clap

And so the TTC Clapotis knitting continues.

Here's one in hot pink (my favorite color!). This one is also made from 2 skeins of Berocco Zen.I haven't really been playing with my camera lately but I took this shot before going to work. The lack of sunlight actually makes the aperture pop! I love my camera so much. It's old but reliable. I took this pic with my Canon EOS 300D and Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 lens.

I'll be heading to Barcelona this weekend. Gaudi! Miro! Javier Bardem! Unfortunately, I have heard MANY stories about purse snatchings, theft, swarmings and gypsies. To the point that I have decided to abandon my DSLR camera. My travel lens (Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM) is quite big and screams "mug me". Instead, I'll be bringing my compact ultrazoom point and shoot, which looks much more discreet. I'm quite sad about it. The picture quality won't be the same but I'm trying to balance safety with acceptable looking pics.

Has anyone else had this dilemma?

Haven`t had the problem, my SIL had her little camera stolen out of her pocket, supposedly by gypsies, in Slovakia. As long as you keep your hands on your stuff it should be OK. But you only have two hands ;-)
