When I was out in California in December I was near Long Beach, and was really amazed at how cool the port (or whatever the hell the area is called) looks. I then went to Flickr to see if I could find some shots and got reading a lot about how much shit photographers get taking pictures of that place, from being arrested, and everything else, all because the port deals with so many things apparently it can be a security issue if you're taking pictures there. I can see both sides of the story, but it really struck me as odd as in my hobby of taking pictures could really get me into hot water and I wouldn't have a clue.

Agreed. I've been having a lot of issues myself locally. The last issue was when I took the night photos of my car for the raffle I'm doing. Within 15 minutes, 5 security guards had showed up and pulled their stupid cars around with the yellow strobe lights. Of course, they were in my way so I couldn't take any more shots and I asked them to move. They asked me what I was doing - so I pointed to the camera, them my car and said "taking pictures of a car at night". They wanted me to leave, but I refused because I was on public property (street) in front of the Government Center in which my tax dollars pay for. They called the cops, cops said I was right and left - and all the security guards left except for one, who sat in the car in the parking lot watching the entire time.

Stupid.

HAHA I read about this on either dpreview or NAPP a while ago. idiots...

the only encounter I've ever had taking photos is from a security guard at the Ceasers casino in Vegas. I was walking down the strip at like 4:00 in the morning and he came out to ask who I was. I was just out front taking shots of all the lights and such. Anyway the guy was really nice and we spoke for about 15 minutes.
