I was doing photography at a location.
Saw some China workers there (no offense...), boarding up one of the buildings.
He asked me what I was doing. Duh, I was shooting, very obviously holding camera.
So I just simply told him I was doing photography.
Then he said "You can't anyhow shoot, you need permit!"
I was like "huh????"
So I lied, say I was only "taking a few shots".
A short while later, the same stupid fella came out again "What are you doing?! Cannot take pics or we'll be in trouble. Go now or I call police!".
Old shophouses slated for demolition, not some military camp or some big secret!!!!!
Who does he think he is?
And guess what?
I went to the front of the buildings, and continued to shoot (workers were round the back).
This man in a pickup truck came out, asked me (very confidently) what I was doing.
I said the same thing. He just smiled and went away. I had a very strong feeling he was the supervisor or foreman.
What on earth?!
Taking pics in public area!
Not as if taking pics in an army camp!!!
