Out and about with my daughter on the streets of Louisville, Ky. This is a high crime area- lots of rape and murder. I actually felt about 90% safer walking in New York City at night than here. The town I live in (in a neighboring state) is small, and when the shops close at 8:00 p.m. or so, the whole place shuts down! It’s filled with convenient stores on one end and boutiques on the other. Not much going on around here. (Which is why I’m extremely jealous of you Aussies!)
That said, I’m on a bordering state, so 5 minutes away, the city is filled with ballets, homeless people, a major airport, art museums, skyscrapers: two completely different worlds within minutes of each other. When I shoot abandoned houses, I stay in my state. When I want to lean toward photojournalism, I hit the bridge and cross over. ;)
