    Yes, this is about as absurd as banning photographs of bridges in the city, when you can go to a public library and look at books with detailed plans showing the structure of most of the bridges in the city, not to mention thousands of photographs of them.

    Maybe I should go out now and get all my photographs of the subway system during the 45 day comment period so that I can sell them to the terrorists for high prices, if a ban is put in place.

    Terrorists are probably going to start posting on photo.net asking what kind of film they should use for photographing in the subway, and specialists in architectural photography will recommend that they leave it to a professional.

    Now that absolutely anyone can take all the surreptitious photos that they want of anything, anywhere, anytime, using nothing but their cell phones, I think that collaring photographers for snapping pictures in plain sight is just silly.

    Phtographer attacked by fire chief

    Read this for another abhorrent incident:

    Someone just doing their job. Pretty soon that won't be allowed either.

    The Golden Gate Bridge was off limits to close photography after 911, but recently opened up again to it. As for the woman photographer that was taking pictures of victims, I think she was wrong. It reminds me of the press taking pictures of princess Diana after that accident. I know no one was killed and the injuries were minor, but they were children. You can take a picture of the assemblage around the victim while they are being treated, but you do not have to get in close and in the way of paramedics as they are working. Also if the parents wanted to NOT have their children photographed, I personally would have backed off. This brings up what is an acceptable photographic image to take at an accident/disaster. We are all struck by the images of the child running in VietNam after being burned by napalm. Or the child the firefighter in Oklahoma City was holding just before she died. Was the photographer in the way of recuse people in those pictures?

    Welcome to fascist America. This kind of thing solves nothing and only digs us deeper and deeper into a big fat hole. Nothing like this can ever prevent a terrorist attack. I personally find it sickening to see more and more politicians and special interest groups use national security and terrorism as "justification" to hold up their own paranoid delusions and steadily diminish our rights.

    Out here the paperrs are also running the NYC-MTA story, and its early over-zealous enforcement:

    but apparently Bloomberg has come out against it already. Bad for the tourist business, most likely.
