Today was a first for me. I got told I couldn't take photos, and had to leave a location. I did check the website beforehand, it said commercial photography needed a permit, this is a hobby so no problem. But oh no, the jobsworth (JW) had to throw his weight around.
It was a weird situation, a tourist location that you can't photograph and certainly can't post on social media.
We left and started shooting just outside the walled off area.
Caught by JW, he then compared us to children. So it wasn't all bad.
Which one do you think looks better, the black and white or colour version?
Then one as we left the park.
I haven't photographed many men so it was a change to have to think about different angles and poses. Especially when JW had made a great location off limits.
What a tourist would have thought had they tried taking some pictures and been marched off, JW even threatened to call the police. I'm sure they have more important things to do.
At the end of the day no-one died, the structure didn't collapse or suffer any damage and I got some good photographs and a story to tell.
