I just want to know how you guys feel when you see this "No Photography" sign inside a shop. I know, I know, this is the shop’s rule and if you enter the shop, you have to abide by it.
Ok, let me just ask you this: If you are standing outside the shop, is there any regulation that prevents you from taking photos of the shop? After all, you are not inside the shop and the street you are standing on is a public place. I have been stopped from shooting from the street before. It seems that shops (especially the fashion shops) are very sensitive about people taking photos of their fashion displays.
The worst one I have encountered is at Sentosa Palawan Beach. Of all the places, Movxxpick Ice creams stall. I was standing next to the beach and was shooting those colorful wooden statues near the Indonesian/Indian restaurant. The ice creams shop worker just shouts at me saying no photographing is allowed. I just ignore him and continue with my shooting. He then came out of the stall and insists that I stop. I told him I was not taking photos at his stall at all but since he has annoyed me with his rudeness, I am going to start shooting his stall. He then continues and repeats that I have to stop shooting. I just tell him if he really wants me to stop, go call the police or the Sentosa Rangers. At the end, he just leaves me alone. Does any you guys know why an ice creams shop doesn’t want people taking photos of their shop? This is really beyond me.
