    the first thing came to my mind is that you have a headache, doing something illegal in the land that belongs to the people that put rules for their country, so you want to get punish, in your idea that sign its not neccessary at all and stupid for such a place but you are not chinese and its just excuse. in my idea its not a brave action its illigal. FYI in iran a jurnalist did the same precisely like you, took her to jail and killed her in jail accidentally, I want to invite you to iran for taking such kind of photos, do you dare to do same in iran Harry? I could help you for visa formality to see your …. I dont know what call the motivation for such an action, bravery or stuborny or anything else.

    That sucks, seeing signs like that doesn\'t it? I noticed that a lot of public areas in Singapore and Malaysia had the same restrictions… But shooting from the hip still adds a surprise aspect to photography.. :)

    I\'m back from my honeymoon now, and I have a bunch of photos to sort through and then maybe a few to publish.. I miss Malaysia already, but it\'s still good to be back..

The story behind "No photo"

It is not as dramatic as it seems, but I will be on a mountain in Russia the next 2.5 weeks, so ExposedPlanet will have a small break. I should have some fresh load of images when I come back.
Thanks everybody for the nice constructive comments, keep them coming, I read and enjoy them all and there are plenty of images still commentless :)

This was the sign at the customs office in Tibet/China, close to the Nepali border. The guards were quite strict on photography and even asking friendly did not work. So all I could take was this from the hip shot between two other people, while looking the other way myself…

See you soon!
