Photography in Jordan...

Are there any photography clubs in Jordan? Amman to be specific?

Is it only me or is Amman a city where photography is highly discouraged and looked upon as a 'weird' action unless you looked like a clueless European tourist?

I had a long post somewhere here ranting about the intelligence services stopping me for taking pictures, will never forget the weird looks I got while walking in Swefieh with a tripod and a DSLR... But coming to think of it, most people sadly have nothing better to do there but to 'observe' others and talk about other people's lives, it's part of our culture I guess
