Default Tuesday night: Great weather + camera = black & white street shooting.

Had some great spring weather the other night, so headed out for 3 hours of pounding the pavement doing some street shooting. Had b&w in mind.

Be careful, people and police could think you are terrorist. You have no good reason to be photographing structures exposed to civilians which are nothing new known in appearance by everyone. Photography is only done to garner meticulous detail of such infrastructure. No ordinary person would have a need or be able to do anything useful with such rich information. In addition to, it obvious you are cloaking the intent of the images by having them come across as art or education materialal with such titles as "A study of stairs". You are not an art or engineering student at a local college, nor a professor, so I am going to ask you again. What do you plan on doing with those pictures?




























In all seriousness, those look amazing! The contrast is perfect. Keep doing what your doing, I like it. And make the most of it before our government makes it illegal altogether

Truth be told, this is a myth.

To date, there has not been one, single terrorist attack where the evidence collected resulted in any photography or videography was used to 'case the joint'.

Not



one



single





instance.





So if I'm ever stopped, I'll merely exercise my 1A and 5A rights.



Welcome to the new world, where terrorism has altered our way of thinking.

Consider this: The only reason the Boston Marathon bombers were captured was simply due to hundreds of private citizens exercising their 1A rights. All those photos and videos ended up documenting every step the bombers took that day. Without these images and videos, they would have gotten off scot free.

And I can promise you one thing. If something happens (God forbid) to anything I photograph, you can bet the rent money the authorities will suddenly subpoena my computer, hard drives and memory cards. Guaranteed.

What a wonderful, two-edged sword the law wields. "You can't take photos, but if a bomb goes off, we'll demand to see those you do have." Fantanstic duplicity.

Bingo. Now your thinking the way government officials and law enforcement ought be thinking. But it doesn't stop overly zealous cops and "patriots" from calling them.

However, it looks like someone had the guts to tell the cops to back off

I carry a card in my wallet for when I am stopped in such instances.



It states the following:

I hereby invoke and refuse to waive all of the following rights
and privileges afforded to me by the U.S. Constitution:
• I invoke and refuse to waive my Fifth Amendment right to
remain silent. Do not ask me any questions.
• I invoke and refuse to waive my Sixth Amendment right to an
attorney of my choice. Do not ask me any questions without my
attorney present.
• I invoke and refuse to waive all privileges and rights pursuant
to the case Miranda v. Arizona. Do not ask me any questions or
make any comment to me about this decision.
• I invoke and refuse to waive my Fourth Amendment right to be
free from unreasonable searches and seizures. I do not consent
to any search or seizure of myself, my home, or of any property
in my possession. Do not ask me about my ownership interest in
any property. I did not consent to this contact with you. If I am
not presently under arrest or under investigatory detention by a
sworn peace officer, please allow me to leave.
• Any statement I make, or alleged consent I give, in response to
your questions is hereby made under protest and under duress
and in submission to your claim of lawful authority to require
me to provide you with information.
• Please do not mistake my invocation of my Constitutional rights
as being 'uncooperative'. Be reminded that such an action cannot
considered 'reasonable cause' to escalate this contact any further.
• Please remember every citizen of the United States is afforded
Constitutional Rights both by law and by lives. Over 650,000
Americans made the ultimate sacrifice to protect and defend them.
This sacrifice was made so all our citizens enjoy our freedoms,
not just the guilty, presumed guilty or assumed guilty.
• Please take the time to explain to me the logic of asking me
to prostitute my Constitutional rights. As a citizen of the
United States of America, I should not be placed in the position
of bartering or trading my rights for my personal safety, liberty
and freedom. Especially when such surrendering of my
rights is under duress, or under threat of arrest or physical harm
to my person.
• If you are a sworn peace officer, please take time to consider
the oath you took. Many uttered their allegiance to uphold the
Constitution of the United States. Please take a moment to
consider whether your current actions are in compliance with
the oath you took.
• Please understand I am not hiding behind the United States
Constitution.... I am standing behind it.

It's funny as all hell when some of these azzhats I hand it to start reading it.

If they get butthurt about it, that's their problem. I didn't do anything to them. They are the ones who initiated the contact, not me. So if they don't like it they can go pound sand.

Texture, contrast and lighting. Removing color highlights those.

Well, dammit, over 650,000 paid the ultimate price. The least I can do is honor their sacrifice.


































Oh, and some of them have shoe-size IQs.

Those 650,000 were real people. Cops harassing citizens is just low, weak and cowardly. This guy said what Ive always wanted to tell the cops but was to afraid of:
