Today, a security guard told me that I couldn't take pictures there. "Why?", I asked. She wasn't really sure. Something having to do with the power plant being a potential terrorist target. If I moved back 2 feet so I was on the sidewalk, I was off the property and could photograph as much as I wanted. Silly, huh? The guard was nice, and apparently determined that three german shepherds, two women, and myself were not a terrorist threat.
Still, something is wrong when you can't photograph a public building. Especially the non-power parts of it. There is a picture on the web here that would be much more useful. Not to mention the hundreds of better angles and the fact that someone could be across the street with a telephoto lens hiding in a car.
I'm not sure who to complain to (if anyone) about the incident. I understand why they are concerned, and that the security guard was just doing her job, but it's a silly rule.
