Chris has suggested that I pass on to everyone the exchange I had with a security guard on Friday, so here it is:
Being Good Friday, City Hall was completely deserted. Being kind of bored, a took a little walk around the second floor rotunda and snapped a few photos of the arcitecture. Within seconds of having shot from a particular angle, a security guard (female, brown hair, french braid, apparently she's a weekend regular) came bounding up the stairs, angrily asking if I had been taking photos of the security guard station. I said I hadn't. Well, then, she wanted to know, what had I been photographing? I said I had just taken a couple of shots of the rotunda. She then demanded that I scroll through all the pics on my camera, presumably to see if I was telling the truth. I did. I wish I hadn't, but I was caught entirely off-guard. Anybody else have any similar experiences?
