Almost Arrested for Taking Photos at Union Station

"As some of you may know, I've been testing out a Gigapan panorama photo system over the last week, after I received a loaner of their robotic camera mount from Carnegie Mellon's robotics lab.
I brought it in to NPR to demonstrate it to colleagues and go on a photo safari to photograph the architecture at Union Station. Apparently, as far as Union Station's security operations are concerned, that's a criminal offense, since we nearly got arrested." Link

Also from today's blogs:

Taking pictures on LA's Red Line violates the "9/11 Law"

"Two FBI agents just showed up at my door for taking photos in the Port of Los Angeles"
