A funny thing happened...

Ok, so there's not much interesting about this picture. In fact I think the lens flare on top is pretty distracting and the composition leaves a lot to be desired. Not to mention it's lacking in contrast and some parts are kinda blown out. What is interesting about this picture is that it's the only one I got before the Metro "Security" lady kicked me out. She didn't come up and ask me if I had a permit, she screamed it from the other end of the platform. After I said I didn't, she made a grand pronouncement that I better be moving on; much to the amusement of her fellow "security" people. Yes I realize that I capitalized security before, but I'm less generous now. This is the platform that I spent an HOUR on last year photographing the trains coming and going. I'm not sure what threat I posed to the subway patrons, or why the guy at the top of the escalator with his point and shoot didn't pose a similar threat, but I packed up and left. And by packed up I mean I put my lens cap on.

You must have different laws there. That was a public place. You are a citzen of the US? Did you have a large cache of weapons hanging on you?

Did they have a warrent?

Of course, I just read this article on the subject.

Captain, I'm going to have to look into the legality of their claim. I don't see any reason why I couldn't be there. Thanks for the link.
