    Default Assuming if....

    U're setting off for a country for the first time in a couple of days and suddenly, a political situation arises where there are street demonstrations by ten thousand ppl..... And the media made it sound like a massive demonstration where the demonstration sounds like the entire country's gonna break out in civil war anytime....

    Would u still go ahead?

    Nope... even if I do not care nor think much about it, but I do not see any sense to let my loved ones worry about me.

    Take it as a photo opportunity.

    Many photo journalists would jump into the next plane for it.

    Well, Singapore being so tame and all. I guess it depends on everyone's threshold for excitement.

    Some prolly are so used to the peace that a small demonstration = riot.
    Some prolly juz wanna get into the heat of action even if they get clubbed by the police.

    But I feel that we live only once, and the world's so unstable politically these days, if we're going to hold back ourselves, we wun get to see many things.

    at last my turn to say "been there, done that"
    when bangkok was in the height of 'violent riots' and instability few years back.
    when indonesia, surabaya was also having some terror threats/ racist attacks last year.

    I was in there but cannot see any actions.. aiz.. what a waste.

    I agree with Paul. Cannot be so selfish. But If I happened to be already there, I will take out my gear and shoot. Photos will talk a lot when this type of situation arises... provided if I shoot well enuf

    When things like these happen, I guess u'll sure shoot well since there's an 'unknown pressure' for u to shoot well.

    Tell urself its a 'do-or-die, 1 shot 1 kill' business and there's no room for NGs and retakes. I guess that will do fine.
