    Hey Everybody,

    This is going to be my last photo for a while. A few hours ago I had my camera stolen right out of my hand. Thankfully, I'm OK.

    It's a good time for a break anyway. Thanks for all the kind comments.

      I was at Arguello and Balboa at about 4:45 p.m. when it happened.

      Thank you! I'm not that mad, actually. The moment when I knew I wouldn't get hurt was a huge relief. Also, the camera appeared to get badly damaged in the process. As for the guy in the photo, I think he was just goofing around.

      Thanks a lot...I'll contact you privately about this.

      I really appreciate everyone's support. Stay safe!

      Glad you're ok but this is such a bummer. If you round up a Nikon body, I have a 18-105 you're welcome to use.

      I was paranoid about this and a few months ago and added all my gear to my insurance policy. Apparently you can do that, as long as you're not making a living from the gear.

      Very sorry to hear this! That's one of my fears--did someone just fly by and yank it? Yikes! Did you lose many images?
      (By the way, the photo here looks like it's somebody who just had his camera yanked away.)
      I hope you'll take some of these nice people's offers so we don't have to stop seeing what you reel in!

      Dang, that's a bummer. Really sorry to hear that, Justin. Arguello and Balboa is the last place I see something like this happening...weird. Glad to hear you're OK.

      I just heard about this earlier today. So sorry for you, my friend! It's one of my greatest fears... even though I know that cameras can always be replaced. If there is anything at all that I can do to help, please let me know. You should be taking pictures. Lots and lots of pictures. Every day.

      Still, I'm very glad to know that you weren't hurt and are okay after this terrible incident.

      I'm so sorry to hear this... I have a Canon Rebel you could borrow, with a really nice zoom lens... or a Fuji Finepix...

      Wow... I live at Arguello and Golden Gate, what day did this happen on? The 21st? It's usually a pretty safe neighborhood, time to start keeping a more careful eye out.

      Justin - just read your interview on ShutterSalt. Will start following your work. Here is a link to a strap I bought to help prevent the very thing you experienced.
