Hi everybody!

Hi Francisco,
I've checked out your forbidden photo
But are you sure that the British police will not track you by the words which you used in the title and the Note?

There have already been some talks on the Forum and in photo discussions about what is and what is not forbidden to photographers...
For example, in St. Petersburg Underground it is said to be forbidden to take photos. But in Moscow Underground - no problem! (unless you have a super-professional equipment, of course - in that case, you must have a special permission for the photosession).
Fortunately I have never faced such situations like those which were described in the BBC article!!

Maybe, but I don't care. The British police doesn't rule in Portuguese airports. Well, we never know these days...

I have also a forbidden photo (see below) at the Lisbon underground (Metro).
You may read the note of that photo. That day they said me it's forbidden, but I don't remember to see any sign or notice about it, and there are many photos of the Lisbon Metro, including here at TE.
Forbbiden Not forbidden. Both in Lisbon Metro.

OK, I have something in mind A bit later I will post a "forbidden" photo (I have one!) with a story - specially for you and in support and honour of photographers showing us the world as it is! Just wait a bit ;-)
I'll set a reminder LOL lest I forget!
