No Pictures?

I don’t know what it is about a site like Strictly No Photography that appeals to my warped little mind.

Maybe it’s just the rebellious attitude to the banning of ordinary people taking pictures of places and things often paid for with public money.

Flickr also has a group dedicated to the same mission called You can’t take pictures here but this site is a little more in your face about the issue.

Considering how decent cameras are being shrunk to amazingly small sizes these days, the whole idea of blocking photography, not to mention video, is becoming a hopeless cause.

But really there’s always been a way to get the shot if you really wanted to.

As evidence, I have ten to fifteen minutes of video taken during a tour of Holyrood Palace, the Queen’s residence in Scotland, at a time when video cameras were shoulder mounted. I just forgot the camera was running as I carried it around.

You believe that, don’t you? :-)
