As someone who enjoys shooting abstract photos which include downtown Denver buildings as subjects, I hesitate to do so these days. I had an experience a few months ago that's made me think twice about continuing the practice. Something that's caused me, since then, to batten down my shutterbug tendencies.
From across the street, I was photographing a structure that I'd previously worked in for five years: one of Denver's World Trade Center buildings. Yeah, perhaps it's not the best idea, in this day and age, to take snapshots of any building with that unfortunate name. But the noonday sun was reflecting artistically off part of its mirrored faÃ§ade, just so.
A security guard approached from the edifice I was standing nearby and confronted me. "Sir, you can't take a picture of that building!" she said sternly. "We've been told to report anyone who does so to Homeland Security." She mentioned the upcoming Democratic National Convention (DNC) during her lecture.
