    funny thing about this is... I was in Boston this summer and was about to take a pic of the subway when "authority" approached me and told me I wasn't allowed to take photographs of the subway... I thought he was jokin' so I continued.... but then noticed he was really serious.... so I put the camera away. Like WTF?

    That depends where you are, there's actually no laws against photographing Subways or transportation infrastructure in a lot of cities but the private security companies that work them will threaten people anyway. There's tonnes of stories about Amtrak putting on a train photography contest last year asking people to submit their best commuter train pictures and then dozens of photogs got hassled under the guise of terrorism.

    As you can see, this was a serious threat to security. I had no problems going for a toke, though.:D Gotta love Amsterdam.

    I was threatened with arrest and confiscation of my equipment for taking pictures of Cogswell Towers from the sidewalk. According to the Rent-a-Cops, taking the same pictures from the other side of the street was illegal as well.

    Fun times :-)
