Nice neighbourhood. :-)Some very interesting photo subjects there. When I was a student in the 70s and 80s, living literally at the foot of the bridge, we used to listen to the sirens and (we thought) gunshots from the other side. Looking back, I think it was just over-active imaginations. (I also think reports of snipers near the bridge are just rumours. :-)Checkitout at:Bridges

Only once, asked to not shoot in a mall. Other than that no real problems with authorities.More worried about taking the camera out in some of the seedier places I'vewander around Toronto.

Just once. Me and a couple colleague had a plant visit, which was actually a beer brewery compound. The guard was pretty polite, he asked us not to take pictures as it was against company policy but he did allowed us a couple of souvenir shots.

Nice pics... I used to have some interesting B&W shots from down by Zug Island... from the early 80's... misplaced them after all the moves over the years... Ahhh... even now I can still remember the smell of the rendering plant... :?

Now a days I stick to much safer enviroments... One popular bridge that you can still take pics of is the Might Mac!

I almost got thrown out of a high school basket ball game last weekend because my strobes (which were about 200 feet away from the court, in the corners) were "getting in a refs eyes". I got escorted into the hallway by two sheriffs, and and talked with the building principal and SID for 10-15 minutes(missing the most important part of the game).

After that I talked to the refs at half time in their lockeroom for 5 mins, I come to find it wasn't even me. It was some guy shooting for the yearbook sitting under the basket with an on camera flash. The ref simple told the sheriff to "get the camera guy out of here!" and I just so happened to be the closest one two the sheriffs.

But thats a little off topic. Heres one that happened a year or so ago.

I was at the city park, at a famly get-together. After most of the people were gone, I decided to try and shoot some squirrels. After about 5 mins of shooting, this cop comes rideing over to me ON A HORSE, and yells at me telling me that the animals in the park are proteced, and owned by the local wildlife sanctuary. He says that I'm not allowed to photograph them. (At this point I am laughing my head off, while this cop, who is still sitting on his horse, tries to give me this BS) I decided not to argue, and seeing how I was about to leave, I just packed up and left.

Auuugh, the exiting hobby of photography!
Don't you just wish you were me?

That sounds a little extreme. Come on, can't he tell the difference between a hunting rifle and a camera? :lol:

Brings to mind a local new story from last year where the police were trying to locate an individual for questioning. The crime they wanted him for: shooting near and around a school yard. They were called by the school officials who notice him and called in. I guess worried he might be up to no good.

Sad, sad times.

Come to think of it maybe there is a good reason for an in camera wireless link, if someone tries to seize your card the images are already saved somewhere else.

Peter.

From what I have read, there are very, very few legal situations where they can "take your film" as it were. The secret service can do it when protecting the president (they can do almost anything in that situation) but not many others.

That is theft of your property if it is tried. It is a threat often made my overzelous guards/whatever, but I believe it is rarely legal.
