Another photography outing, another visit from the police. On the positive side, this police officer was a woman and seriously cute, but on the whole, I'm getting tired of being stopped and questioned by the police on what is now averaging three of every four outings I undertake, especially as I'm not doing anything improper or illegal. There was a time when a poorly trained security guard was my nemesis and there were several occasions when I called the police so that they would explain the law to a guard who wouldn't accept hearing it from me. It has been ages now since the last time I had an issue with a security guard and ironically, it's now the police who have become the problem instead of being the solution ... to my mind, this is all very Fahrenheit 451-ish and in the long run, I don't think it bodes well for either my photography or this country's future... 8^(
