I seached around the forums for a good place to post this story and could not find any better place then this being this is a story about a perticular LOCATION... What is this country coming too? I was on the way home today with my D70 and a small 50mm lens on it. I decided while waiting for the train to come it to take a few motion blur shots of the arriving train on the opposite side of the tracks. I noticed this particular day there was more metro security guards then I've ever seen in the station at one time. Anyways, As I took my lens cap off someone yelled "NO PICTURES" and I turned around and did not see where it came from so I thought someone might have been talking to someone else and then as I was about to shoot a picture, I heard voice say "I SAID NO PICTURES". I then noticed a security guard LADY sitting on the bench all relaxed and slouched down not even standing and looking professional as a authority figure should be. I walked up to her and said, "No pictures?" She said no pictures of trains. We are speaking cave man at this point it seems. So I went on to tell her I've taken my camera in the metro many times and taken many pictures of trains, people, turn styles, ticket vending machines etc. and this is the first I've ever heard of this. I do not see any signs posted saying "no photography in the metro" anywhere. I asked her if the metro station is considered a public place, she said yes, I then told her she has no right saying I can not take a picture of a wall or a train or anything of the nature. I have read my legal books well about public photography though I know there are some gray areas. She said she could write me a citation if I like and then they would have to take my camera away. I knew she would need a legally written warrant to confiscate my camera but to avoid further confrontation; I told her no thanks and walked away. What the hell country is this? I know security should be tight but there were a lot of people with cameras cell phone cameras all using them so this was kind of stupid. I plan to write metro an official letter about the incident and get the official word and then keep this in my camera bag with me for next time.
