I think we need a photowalk to photograph the Kentwood water tower.

Seems somebody had a power-trip!
I love how they say "I'm sure you'd find the Coast Guard very excited if somebody (was photographing) the Mackinac Bridge." Literally every tourist/photographer who goes across takes at least half a dozen!

Perhaps you didn't realize that DHS recently upgraded the threat level to "stupid"

Ed's a good friend of mne, and he and I are both members of the gr flickr group. I think it would be *awesome* to have a whole group of people ll go out there and take pictures at once.

Ed (the guy in the article) is a friend of mine too. It would be really funny if people did a water tower focused photowalk.

Date? Time? Address to mail photos to City Hall afterward? :)

As for your right to photograph something, this PDF guide is a few years old but still a good reference: www.krages.com/phoright.htm

There's a book available too, but I haven't read it so I can't vouch for it.

I would be up for a photowalk to the tower too! I will certainly be stopping by to take a few shots very soon either way....

I love the comment the mayor made about the Mackinac Bridge. If you go to the Mackinac Bridge Authority website they specifically point out a good place to take photos. I had to email him the link, along with a mildly sarcastic comment.

I stopped by this morning and took a few. I will post them up soon. I'll drop a note to Mayor Root and utilities manager Gorney with a link to the photos...just for their enjoyment. Who knows, maybe they will ask to use my photo on the city's webpage ;-)

Still wouldn't mind doing a photowalk just to prove a point.

Thumbs up for Ed's highly entertaining comment:

""I don't think (terrorists say), 'We got the World Trade Center. What's next -- Kentwood?'"

While ideally it should be during the day so we could photograph utility workers, how about Thursday eve. 6 pm. Park near the water tower?

Does someone have an address? I don't know Kentwood very well any more.

Need to have prints and a display some place of all the resulting art.

OH GOODNESS... I can understand the concern since the 9/11 but did they really need to harrass this guy the way they did.
I think a walk is just what Kentwood needs lol

Thursday at 6 would be fine, but personally, I'd prefer a time when city workers will definitely see us.

The ideal time would be morning for that, but that's probably not realistic. Actually, the ideal in my view would be about 500 people all wearing name tags saying "Hello, my name is..."

But Thursday at 6 would be a workable substitute.

Is there anyone who wants to try for an organized morning time too?
