Coke Says No Tripod Shots In Olympic Park


Stuck in customs was nearly stuck in jail for taking a photo with a tripod in Atlanta’s Olympic Park:

I set up my tripod to take a photo of downtown and the Coke Museum was in the middle of the shot. A female cop of came over and told me I had to take down the tripod because I looked like a professional. Coke does not allow that, so she said. I said I’m a blogger with expensive toys and hardly a threat. Then she got quite huffy and agitated before telling me if I did not take down the tripod that I would be arrested.

Whose park is it anyway? I’d be interested to know. If it is a public park, how is it that Coke gets to say who can take pictures from it?

The photo above via Flickr is not the shot he wanted. It’s the one he got away with!

Via Photography is not a Crime.
