Here’s another in the rash of tales since Sept. 11 about all sorts of photographers being questioned and detained for taking perfectly legal pictures.
KING-5 reports today that the Snohomish police cuffed an associate professor of fine art at UW, Shirley Scheier, for taking pictures of power lines.
Now the ACLU is suing the department.
Here’s a good primer on what you can and can’t shoot when you’re out there—and with few exceptions, the cops and the security guards crying “security” are wrong.
