Melbourne, the camera friendly city

Maybe I didn’t follow the recent Haneef incident too closely, but I don’t remember him being in trouble because he had photographs that were far too nice to be tourist snaps.

However, consider reading DPExpert’s Snapping in a time of paranoia. It tells you what you can photograph, and what you can’t. I’m surprised the NGV on St. Kilda Rd is listed as one that permits photography – they’re really anal about keeping your bag in the cloak room.

    It was reported Haneef had some architecture shots that were under suspicion but I think it was one of those claims that the AFP dismissed as false.

    I’ve never really had problems with cameras or bags at either NGV. Once out of 20-30 times a security person grumbled about the size of my bag but didn’t make me put it in the cloak room. If you’re not taking photos of that include art work the security guards don’t even give you a second glance.

    Lucky you Reina. Maybe they’re more strict now that the Guggenheim is around? I vaguely recollect everytime I’ve walked in, I’ve cloak-roomed my bag. Maybe mine’s just a little too large? ;-)
