I was going to video and photograph my son's Christmas performance at the mall today. I've realized that given recent tragic events, it may be a bad idea to bring my camera backpack and my video tripod (which is in a long black bag) into the mall.
Even out of its bag, the tripod is long, black, metal...which could be mistaken for something else at a distance...especially with folks on edge right now. I've decided to leave all the equipment at home this time.
Has anyone else had similar concerns or problems? Any thoughts on how to prevent misunderstandings?
