My camera was stolen - on Saturday, at our school from right under our noses. At our own school's annual chess tournament. And as the very kind policeman that took my statement mentioned - it is someone that was not out of place. That was watching our every move. That chose the one moment that our attention was not right there to grab my camera with kit lens and my zoom lens and just melted into the crowd again. Let's be honest, it is quite possibly a parent. With over 200 kids competing there are lots of parents from everywhere.
I am angry - not just about losing my camera but about losing some lovely photos I took that day. I am angry that somewhere that you feel safe and happy you are violated like this. I feel angry that it was "one of us" that felt they had the right to take from me. I am just angry.
