We are in the "post 9/11" era. This excuse is used when people don't want you to take a photo. Photographers are likened to terrorists and cameras to weapons. It seems scale is important - point and shoot? You're NOT a terrorist. Big lens, prosumer camera? Well, then, you ARE a terrorist and should be harassed/detained/questioned/arrested for your crime of taking photos.
