one of the other threads that i had the misfortune to participate in let me realize something that goes hand in glove with photography .. people with cameras believe they should be allowed to photograph whatever and wherever they please. plenty of folks venture on to private property, sneak into abandoned houses crawl through the sewer system break into abandoned asylums ... and if or when they get caught, they play dumb like they had no idea that they were trespassing, or someplace making photographs they either shouldn't have been, or would need a permit/permission to do. i know i have had my share of close calls of getting a fist in my face for photographing people in late night eateries, photographing people on subways trains, or walking around abandoned farms with my camera. i knew i wasn't in the right, but i did it anyways and was prepared to deal with the consequences. my questions for whoever feels like answering this question is do you purposefully break laws so you can photograph, or photograph in situations where you may be harassed by law enforcement or property owners because it is you first amendment right?
