Good day fellow Photo Junkies.

I am sad to report that the only thing I had in motion was the mugger who held me up at knife point and then smashed my phone and ran away with my photography gear :(

Will try and enter with my phone camera, excuse my pictures if they are now super blotchy as my phones camera got smashed a bit too...

What a sucky weekend.

 

Damn... sorry to hear that..  That sucks.

If someone gets robbed like that and is carrying a gun do they have the right to shoot him?

Bringing a gun to a knife fight. No matter how angry or upset I am, the answer would be no. He stole my stuff for money for food and booze... Act of desperation. ( guess I had some time to at least process this) yesterday my answer might have been different.

I just don't know how I am going to replace anything right now. That is the worst part for me.

So which camera and how many lens got stolen.

He got my Canon 7D, and I only had a 50mm f1.4 and 24-105 L.

Trying to see what I can sell now, as with the study debt, I am looking to at lease afford a Canon 450D and a 50mm f1.8 and 70 300 lens. Was trying to start a weekend business photographing people and their first car. Also a big event in someone's life.

Just can't make more debt.

Thanks for asking.

That would be my initial thought probably.

Well eye for and eye, I guess. Though it's up to the "better humans" to know whats right and whatsnot.

 

Sorry for your loss man, that sucks big time... Why did the guy smash your phone?

I am sure the reason is that the mugger didn't want him to call 911 on mugger. So the mugger smashed it so he can't call anyone on him.

 

If it happened to me, I can borrow a phone from someone who is nearby me or run to the nearest phone booth.

Oh.. I didn't pay attention to his location...

 

I don't know the number for EMS in his area.

 

I just looked up and they have 5 digits numbers for EMS which is 10111.

Heya everyone ...

yes 10111 is the correct way to go. Phoning the police wouldn't have helped much. That is the irony.

It would have taken them way to long to respond ; ( .

Thank you for everyone's commentary.

Any one want to buy a kidney?

Ps.. Isn't EMS - emergency medical services?

Loving it mate. I wouldn't say no to an upgrade but I doubt I'd really benefit from it.

First ever post of a photo from me. Only used to use my camera for work but trying to start to learn how to take photos generally.

 

Do I need to post the Exif data here?

You don't have to but as long as you have EXIF data on that site... and a link in the post...   if no link or EXIF data, then you will need to include EXIF data with your post for us to review.

If I'm not wrong the Exif data is the information under the heading DETAILS on 500px right?
