I don't know how much more of this I can take. We should have reached a cap on how amazing a photo can be by now, but no. This thread just ****s that theory in the ass every other week.

Lovely. I guess the security guards didn't stop you from taking photos.

Thx! They walked past me a few times and seemed fine with the photography. In general Hong Kong is very lenient with photographers compared to other places I feel.

I encountered some problems at that podium level taking photos of the Arch. I was wondering whether it's another case of private companies overstepping their rights when maintaining "public" space.

Same thing happens to me quite often in Hong Kong. I have been stopped when standing on public ground taking a photo of a restaurant. Taking pictures in HK buildings is probably amongst the most restrictive in the world since there are so many security guards per sq ft.

That SC4 model is very cool.

I've never had much trouble taking pictures of buildings while outdoors in a public space.
