private parking


Today's picture may get me into trouble. This is part of the park which surrounds the theatre that I'll be performing at in two days. However, no one is allowed to take pictures without the written consent from the sales office that manages the property. While I was snapping, a security guard came up and told me so. I quickly befriended said guard and went to a quieter area to continue my snapping activities. When I was done, I thanked the guard and walked to rehearsal.

Rules are meant to be broken. The difference is how you break them.

Hmmm how odd that you can't take photos there. It looks like a great place to think or read. I really like your flower from yesterday as well!

That's just WRONG! This is a PUBLIC PLACE! I can see somewhere like a library...with private art collections...requiring a signed consent form (I had to do one when I shot those scenes inside our library)...but outSIIIIIIIDE? Just what do they think they're protecting? OK, off my soapbox...glad you got to break a rule...sometimes minor infartions just have to happen! LOL! Oooh, I meant to say inFRACtions...no, I didn't! ;-) Beautiful place...is it ever full of people?

Nice shot, it's great to see it in a big frame. I'm still trying to get the pictures to post bigger in my blog but have not been successful.

As I have said before, i really don't know why they have such restrictions about phototaking. Beauty is meant to be shared! Unless it's your other half! Ha ha ha....

Always like shots of wood--so many different tones!

I look at "no trespassing" and "no pictures" signs as suggestions, not commands!

Nice shot, glad you got some on the sly.

That hedge is immaculately trimmed.

Written consent? It is too bureaucrat...

Hi Edwin! I do not really get that when they forbid taking pictures of things that are beautiful...why did they built them in the first place! For their own viewing pleasure? Why not share to the whole world??

I'm in a similar situation at the moment.. one of my kids is working on a hugely budgeted movie, and I could fill this blog with photos for months on end that would all be absolutely stunning... but in my case I can't smuggle a camera in, and if I did, I would be risking a huge law suit! Drats! I can't even tell you anymore than that!

Thanks for your shot though.. it's a good one!

You know, this fear that people have about sharing is really annoying! This park is considered private property by the owners! Unless you have official business, you can't enter. So, it's empty everyday. Bollocks, I say!

The show I'm in is now 5 days behind schedule and we open tomorrow night! However, i have faith that it'll all pull through tonight.

John, I completely understand the 'secrecy' that's surrounds a big-budget movie. But still...Bollocks!

I have half a mind not to post any of the shots I've taken in the park. But I have some pretty decent shots and I want to share them. And I doubt anyone from the relevant offices visits KLDP anyway.

Thanks for popping in everyone! Love always.

Pity when the beauty of the world is private property.
