83. I was given a "talking to" Saturday on the DC metro for taking a pic w/iPhone

I've been commuting to VA from MD for over 3 years now and have never seen an empty metro car. I happened to be in the (almost) empty car, so I thought I'd snap a quick pic. Cop comes out of conductors' area and asks me what I'm taking pictures of. I told him the empty train car, showed him the pic and then said, "I've never seen an empty car before."

He then proceeds to tell me that I look suspicious because of the inauguration, did I maybe consider that when I went to take the picture. I told him, no, I'm not a criminal, so I wouldn't consider that. I've read Carlos' blog and other sites (I have the photographer's right PDF) but I never figured I'd have need of that information.

So for those giving Carlos a hard time about what he's doing, think about taking an innocent photograph and then being "talked" to about doing so by an armed person. Or consider that if you state your constitutional rights and are arrested because the cops feel like.
