even for taking pictures of children, i cant see a problem..
i tried to find out who owns this extremely public place so i could email a complaint, but i got no reply from the police, who have so far ignored my emails..
Cops. I find that as soon as they realize I do not "have an attitude" or act in any way to "challenge" their authority, they back off their aggressiveness and act more polite. Your first initial response to them in words and expressions can make a big difference. Now if I pulled out my "photographer's rights card" and started to insist upon my rights, they will see that as an attitude or a challenge to their authority. So respond to them politely and you will get a better response from them.
