This is a good example of why I so enjoy having a smaller camera system. I can carry my Olympus in my messenger laptop bag so I always have it with me. In the past I would only have had my smartphone with me.
I was walking to a meeting at a client’s office and they happen to be located in a very bad part of Casco Viejo in Panama that is just starting the gentrification process. This placed is called Parque Santa Ana and it is very poor and still filled with abandoned buildings.
So in the two minutes it took to walk from my car to the client’s office I pulled my camera out of my laptop bag and took a few quick shots.
