Re: Dire Warning To Photographers !!!

Travel advisories, have for years and years, warned against putting anything valuable in your checked baggage because of the risk of theft. There have been very cases of bags opened and pilfered.

I'm retired now, but when I was working I traveled regularly to Europe and also to numerous domestic sites. I never had anything stolen; but several times my bags arrived without the little locks I put on them. I never had anything stolen because there was very little worth stealing in my bags - that always went in the carry ons.

It's inconceivable to me that a professional or semi-pro photographer would be dumb enough to check all his gear and media through.
