O-ho the Wells Fargo Wagon is a-comin' down the street,
Oh please let it be for me!

I wish, I wish I knew what it could be.

We have one of these Wells Fargo stage coaches in the Wells Fargo bank downtown Minneapolis that is open to the skyway system. The photography group I was with tried to get a photo of it, me included. We got kicked out of the building by the secutiry.

In fact that day, we were booted from 7 differnt buildings and skyays. I guess us camera geeks pose a security risk. Must be an ordinence prohibiting geeks from posh areas. ;)

hahaha! Yes, I was wondering if someone was going to come after me, but I think I lucked out. I actually had a security guy ask someone else about me taking photos the other day when I was shooting the ceiling of that other bank, but they said it was OK. I figure I should just do it until someone says I can't, then play dumb... ;-)

I have had other friends get asked not to take photos in the bus tunnel, but they were male. For some reason, they leave me alone (though I can see them watching me). Profiling at it's best...

Cool picture! And darn it all... I was going to do Old / Fashion for next week's Two Things. Hm. Now I'll have to come up with something different.

As for being stopped while taking pictures, I solved that one by having Moo cards made. Now, when someone asks what I'm doing, I hand them my card. Nitwits. Damn Bush-Cheney and letting the terrorists win!
