I have travelled (and lived) extensively in some of the poorest countries in the world, and I often find that the poorest people sometimes live the richest lives.

And the most sincere, and heart warming smile I have ever seen came from those areas too.

Often makes me wonder whether we have the understanding of poverty all wrong....

So true! There are kinds and kinds of poverty.

btw I have been mugged at knife point twice already and all my equipment stolen..its not something I care to experience for a 3rd time and so I take great care of my personal safety...no image imo is worth dying for,  so yes I don't go into areas I would consider too dangerous...and so these images were made in a relatively safe environment...

Good reason to have a 50 1.8 on an older camera body for walk around gear, and for photography in places more prone to crime

I just left my bag with a 1dx and 70-200 at the hockey arena where I was shooting....Realized what i had done when i got home.  Drove right back and there it was, still sitting on a bench where I left it. 

It must have sat there unattended for an hour with all kinds of people around.....lucky.

Sometimes a package is left back by design! Because "not nice" things are in it... I'd suggest don't snatch ;)
