Through the Eyes of a Thief

What do you see when you walk down city streets, through the hallways of office buildings, or ride an elevator up to your hotel room? Most see the world as we are expected to: stores that are open or closed, main entrances we're expected to use, and doors and floors only accessible if we are credentialed and authorized to be there.

That is not the world that I see. I am a professional thief.
