"Cameras and Laptops: Beware" Cameras & Photography Tip by ForestqueenNYC

Cameras & Photography, Paris: 6 reviews and 5 photos

Be very careful about whom you ask to take your picture or who asks you if you would take his picture.

I was taking a picture of the Eiffel Tower from a side street when a young man came up to me and asked me if I would like him to take my picture. I was just about to say yes, when I remembered the story my landlady told me. It was about a man with a laptop. A "tourist" asked him to take his picture and he said yes. He put his laptop down on the ground next to him and was about to take the camera when the so called tourist reached down and grabbed the laptop and took off.

As I was about to give my camera to this stranger that story flashed through my mind, I thought maybe that would be the last time I would ever see that camera again. So I said no.
