    Just a thought -

    With all the 9/11 scares and SARS and the paranoia of some people, don't be surprised if they think you to be a terrorist suspect.

    .... armed with a SLR, its actually a portable, laser-guided RPG for blowing away the tops of buildings...

    Home Team premises (SCDF, Police, Prisons, MHA HQ) are also restricted. Only the Immigration checkpoints at Woodlands and Tuas are okay to shhot at from outside. But if lets say you kinda like the twin towers of MHA HQ, take it from across the road and I don't see reason for anyone to stop you.

    Actually, in addition to what I just posted, I think as long as you are not shooting from the premises ground, you should be fine...
    ie; shooting from across the road or something.

    It's a lot more paranoid in the US now really. You can't even take pictures of any landmarks there without a policeman coming up to you to check what you are doing!

    But they do have, and in your case (Phoenix Park2), are empowered to stop you. Anyway, that are other nice buildings else in Sg. Twins, quadruplets elsewhere...
    Cheer up!

    Should not be so long as you dont shoot the earlier mentioned type of buildings.

    I cannot understand the logic of not allowing shots of Esplanade or Millenia Walk though. I've never been stopped there before.

    Well, it's always good to ask first if you could take pictures of any buildings. It beats being taken out by a police sniper who thinks you are a terrorist. :P

    But then was told by the same security supervisor that I was allowed to take pictures of the art works on display.

    Do you think this security supervisor knows what he was talking about? Anyone got similar experience?
    Using a video camera, to zoom in on the "DBSBANK" logo of the DBS Tower 1 along Shenton Way.

    Was stopped by the security guard who insist on checking the contents or take me in.

    (I guess the Yishun video taken by the JI suspects in Singapore, really freaked them out.)

    Unfortunately, I did not want to get into any "trouble" with them, as my boss will be really upset if she received a letter/email from DBS abt them mattar.

    So I decided to rewind the tape by a min or 2 and erase that portion of the tape.
    In the end, the guard did went back to his post.


    What's with video-ing DBSBANK? It's not technically a sensitive area?

    Before the 9-11 incident, no one cared abt who entered or left the building, I guess even if you are a stranger, you could even walk in, go up the floors, use the toilet and then leave without any one stopping to ask you what's your purpose.

    If I were a terrorist, I'll be taking pictures of my targets with tiny spy cameras and not with a Bronica ETRS medium format camera lah!!! Do think terrorists are so stupid?

    No wonder terrorists got what they want! Because our police and security guards are busy stopping innocent tourists and photo enthusiasts from taking harmless pictures of unlikely terrorist targets!

    Talk about paranoia!
