    Not just that. Need to make sure carrying solution is well balanced and to lower the center of gravity. Having some sort of belt system is very helpful.

    RIP.

    For the rest of enthusiast, pls be careful when shooting. Remember those who love you.
    A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.

    In PRC, especially, in those road less travelled, safety could be lacking, like broken planks on suspension bridges, or lack of barricades or parapets that are designed for a big crowd.



    another safety issue is the lack of fire fire safety in hotels.



    and of course, l pick pockets.
    Do not be afraid [of ghost and bullies] Shoot them......
