I want to make another car trip with my camera this weekend. Any ideas? Any safe places?
I want to be able to take amazing photos out in nature in sunrise and sundown and try out taking photos of the night sky and stars. But I am too scared to be out alone nowadays, and also with theft attractive camera gear with me begging someone to attack me. I even feel a bit insecure being out in middle of the day and even though I find it a bit embarrassing and disturbing to bring out the camera and take photos among people – I stay around places where I know there are plenty of people around, or near.
I hate that I can’t look through that fear and that it prevents me from doing what I want. Things have changed so fast. I didn’t use to feel this way in ”safe” Lidingö but only in six months time things have changed for the worse in terms of thefts, rapes, attacks etc. It’s a scary development.
I think the whole world has become more violent, more hateful and less tolerant the last couple of years and that change is also very quick. Can someone tell me where this is coming from?
Is it the years of economic crises that make this hate appear and the world such an unstable place? I mean, Hitler came about after the economic depression in the 30s. Are we seeing the same change now?
Is it power hunger and greed among the big leaders of this world? The fight for oil, money and power?
Why do we suddenly hate so much?
I think we need to be aware of something. Some people benefit from this hate. Identify them. And find the money. There is our source.
Can we fight the hate and fear in ourselves, that these people set out to plant into our souls, for a better world? So that they don’t win and destroy our world? Or do we fall for propaganda on both sides painting the others as evil?
