Incredible Alan! BOP
Thanks for that Maarten. These buildings, and many more in the area too, date back to WW2. The french army still use them for target practice. In fact, i took some shots of them doing just that! I wonder, if I upload them here, would I get arrested? (Or is that just in America?)
I had some pictures deleted by the police in January, (I wandered into the middle of a crime scene investigation and was obliviously snapping away thinking I'd hit the jackpot). I was shocked that they actually had the right to delete pictures from my camera...
I was busy snapping away myself, one lovely sunny day, when I was approached. He was a soldier, who informed my that I was in a restricted area. I was only in the middle of an army camp, which also contain a prison! I told him that I was just taking a photo of the fire station. He said, as long as I stuck to public areas! He didn't ask to see my photos or to delete them. Isn't the Irish Army a friendly lot! It wasn't until I was leaving the area, that I spotted the sign 'PHOTOGRAPHY PROHIBITED!' I got another reminder on this photo of the Post Office . Alan.
Excellent shot. Cold, blue and white. I'm shivering!
Just noticed the previous conversation. Look here for info regarding photographers rights in the UK. I'm not sure about Ireland Alan.
Read that Martin... interesting , all right. I was asked to delete a photograph (which I duly did) in a shop in Paris. It was the 'shutter sound' on the camera that gave me away. It was an 'Arty' shop and I had taken a photo of a piece of sculpture. (It was a boat with lots of little figures poking their heads out from port holes. I thought it looked fun). I can see where the girl was coming from - which is why I didn't hesitate in deleting the photograph (though she didn't check that I did!). I could go off and copy the piece of art AND I was on her premises so ...
Yes, I was almost wrestled to the ground in the Ulster Museum after taking photos of abstract artwork that my wife might find funny (she was at home at the time). These were serious pieces made of lines and blocks and such that my kids could have replicated, but sold for tens of thousands of pounds. I never deleted them though!
... and? ... Have you the kids working on it yet? Big money to be made??? :)
I think so! Maybe the more pompous you are the more you get paid? I forgot that lesson.
Yeah! Like the 'Unmade bed' or the calf, cut in half, in a tank of formaldehyde! Such rubbish! Though, it does remind me if THIS photo by Maarten
Yuk! This does nothing to advance the cause of art. I'm not a prude, in fact I'm quite 'avantgarde' in many of my areas of music and films, but this is nonsense, pure and simple. I love things to make people think, spark debate and all those cliches, but in the words of No.6 (speaking of his art piece in episode 2 of the Prisoner),'It means what it is'. In this case, a dead man in a tank.
After reading the above comment, this photo is ver precious. It is really incredible.
