It is said that Barcelona is Europe's pickpocketing capital, but it goes on in most cities where there are a lot of people, especially tourists.

La Rambla and Raval are the two areas where it appears most prevalant although you have to be watchful around bus and train stations, at the airport, or in any crowded area.

I have spent a good deal of time in Europe and here are some tips:
-People may approach you asking for change, or to change money. Just ignore them, because if you get your wallet out, or purse open, it is easy for them to do a snatch and grab. This happend to my wife in Amsterdam a couple of years ago..

They like to target older folks because they know they can outrun them.

A variation of the above goes like this;
-If you are asked to change money, then official looking police may approach you afterwards to 'check' your wallet for ID, etc. These are not police, so be at your most vigilant or you might find they have taken a few cards or cash upon returning your wallet.

-One of the local specialties is the "football" trick; At tourist hotspots, there are people who will try to show you a 'magic trick'. This involves tying a piece of string around your finger. While you are distracted (and your arm is effectively disabled), an accomplice will pickpocket you.

-Criminals will also pose as tourists and ask directions to approach their victims.

The subway is notorious for pickpocketing in any city that is a tourist meca. It can range from simple opportunistic thefts to coordinated attacks;
A group of men will come out of seemingly nowhere while you attempt to enter a subway car and block your entrance and exit in a coordinated manner, effectively pinning you against the doors while they close. They will act as if the car is just crowded and they are trying to get on as well, but, in reality, they have already gone through your pockets. Once they take stuff, they quickly return to the platform and walk off calmly while you are trapped in the departing subway as they make sure they exit just before the doors cannot be reopened.

Violence in these situations is rare, and in most cases the goal of the thieves is to rob you undetected.

Finally, no matter where you are STAY VIGILANT:
-do not leave anything in a back trouser pocket (except maybe a map of the city).
-Hold on to your bag or purse at all times. -Do not leave anything unattended while you sit in a cafe or restaurant.
-Never keep your wallet, cash or important documents in trouser pockets or in bag pockets: a money belt is an easy and inexpensive way to prevent being robbed.

I am working on my packing for photo products. I really want something different, available in small quantities, matches my colors, inexpensive, safe for photos and kinda quirky.

I think I finally figured it out with these bags.

Keep in mind, I've been sewing since I was 7, and designing my own patterns since I was probably 8. I have been a collectible teddy bear artist (yes those exist) and a bag designer (for pocket money).

I made 2 bags myself, in about 30 min, while watching Oprah and designing it from scratch, so I estimate I could probably make one in under 10 min, or between 5-10 if I made them in bulk.

My intentions are to use these for 8x10, 11x14. Smaller photos would be put in just a simple sleeve with no button.

I really wanted to put them into something that could also be used for long term storage. I know that when I was married the first go around, I left my wedding photos in a plastic sleeve for around 12 years! I thought if someone did that with mine, I'd prefer that they be in a bag that is safe. Cotton fabric is acid free (well most fabrics will be except for vinyls and such). It will also keep the photos free from dirt and fingerprints.

The only thing I think I'm going to add to it, is probably a label that I'll have printed with my company logo.

FYI: Photo is not mine, it's my own wedding photo taken by Jaime de la Cruz.
