How not to get mugged
5

This is applicable to anyone who is into street or travel photography, maybe to other types of photography as well.

I presume carrying nice-looking camera gear would present as a good target for mugging.

Cliff's Notes:

  • Scream
  • Don't fight
  • Don't wear a watch
  • Carry mace/pepper spray in one's hand while not actively taking a pic
  • Avoid subways
  • Go out shooting with others
