    Found something interesting too.

    so far, im also been confronted a few times. but i respect the request, thou it really made my day.

    once i was in Jalan baser, near the deska road area. I was told by 2 guys not to take picture. i wonder what was wrong until i walked into a lane and there are ppl selling sex toys... a bit disappointed thou since this will be a good record but i understand why i shouldnt.

    Another time was in a mosque deem as national heritage, the priest told me that i can take pics of the building, but not the people. Also very disappointed as the human aspect is the most interesting.

    something i found on the net too.

    Another time i was stopped by a patrolling police car which happens to pass by coincidentally, as i was in the higest level of a multi story carpark, who wouldnt suspect?

    I remembered sometime ago, there was a mother doing breast feeding in the Esplanade and was told off by the security. Her reaction, got all her kakis there and a mass breast feeding was held there. Was even in the news.

    Got the idea?

He didn't even turn around or faced me when talking to me. Spoilt my mood to shoot totally.

    Were there alot of people around at that time when you shoted back? if there is you got to be really daring

    illegal gathering will happen only if i think a big group is in a secluded spot, or a suspicious place. they wont suspect if they see a big group of photographers with big cameras.

    Its always safety in numbers.

    From what I understand from a Zaobao shooter : so long you are standing on PUBLIC property shooting, no one has the right to tell you to delete your shots.

    Another another ST shooter: when he was asked to let the challenger look at the photos... he quickly popped out a blank card into the camera BEFORE being asked.

    Being ready helps, having your photography namecard may help too.

    The article is very interesting. The contents tallies with what i have in mind i.e no one has the right to stop any photographer, be it in public or on private property. They can only ask you to leave. And an offence is committed only if there is refusal to leave the premises. The photos taken are the property of the photographer and there is no obligation to delete them.

    Although the article is based on US laws, to the best of my knowledge, Singapore laws are fundamentally similar in this aspect. Hope that fellow photographers will now have a better knowledge of their rights.

    About deleting them...do so in front of those security personnel. But go back to PC and restore them using some lost data recovery program. Bottom line is, NO WAY YOU CAN DELETE DIGITAL JUST LIKE THAT
