Just this afternoon I wanted to take a few photos at the local railway
station.  I had no sooner lifted the camera to my eye when the station
attendant appeared saying "You can't take photos here".  I didn't push
it because I was on railway property and maybe she was within her
rights, but it's getting to the stage where people think that anyone
carrying a 'real' camera is a terrorist or a child molester.
