Taking photos of IMF security = ass kicking?

I'm thinking of heading down to the barricades, and taking some shots of the security there (the walls, razor wire, guards). Am I likely to be trundled off for questioning and a thorough beating, even though I'll be doing the tourist thing?

not that i am racist here... it will boils down to the color of your skin... no prize for guessing the correct color that won't get interrogated...

I dont think you will be taken away for questioning, but they wont be best pleased, try your luck, you might get away with it you might not, just decide whether its worth it or not. Oh and remember if its a public place they have no righ to tell you to stop taking photos or to delete photos.

Do let us know how you get on (if you go)!

I dont think this is really true, myslef and other photographers from the UK have been stopped and questioned before.

ah ya... not everything is by beating.

I think it is ok to just go there. The cops will just you nicely to go away or move away. My father went there to have a look. The cops just nicely told him to go off:think:

Is there a filter I can buy to prevent BTTL? ;)

To be honest, I am a little chicken. Still trying to pluck up the courage to head down.
hmm try asking oakley to make a plutonite 1 for u... but i dunno if it can withstand sniper rounds anot, only see some showcase on pallets...

just beware of the color cast...

Also, I think if I'm pretty obvious about my intentions -- camera out, slow shots, looking whiter than white -- I might be alright. ****, I might even just boldy point at camera, point at them, mime taking shots. (While they mime handcuffs, beating with truncheon back at me) ;)

Thanks, Static.

You know what? I'm heading down! Where's the best barricades/ghurkas combo?
Mr Ang Moh, are u serious ? :eek: :bigeyes:
Most likely you would be chased away after taking a few shots.

Worse ...

You may have police coming up to you and asking you to surrender your card or delete everything, protesting might land you in 24 hr detention for obstructing justice.
