Those blokes from Pinkberry have been on to me............. pointing out how much they now love photography......... and how welcome people are to shoot photographs of their business........... well thats a turn up for the books :-))) cos you can look back to here to see how they were feeling originally........... but just to show how anybody who moves away from a 'No Photography' position to a 'sure take any photos you like' stance......... will be rewarded by getting my custom......... and welcomed home as the prodigal son......... I am intending to buy a yogurt and take a few pics next time the chance presents itself and I would recommend that others do the same ........ I'd better go with Amin as he loves the place........... :-))

This exchange got me thinking........ I was thinking we photography types should use our little bit of economic muscle ........... We should boycott places that ban photography and frequent places that allow it ........ Simple as that ............. I\'m gonna be looking out for places that ban photos........ Shooting pictures of their 'No Photos' signs and putting them up here on Jezblog.............. Then I will suggest we don't patronize that establishment........ nor in fact any that ban photography......... we should try and list them all ........... If you have any near you ..... send me photos of their \'No Photography\' signs .......... to........ jez at jezblog dot com ........... I'll get Amin to build another page so they can be displayed and we can make a little list of business' that deny the freedom to make photographs.......... so we can know who they are.............. so that us people who like personal freedom and photography will not give them any money........ until they have reversed any restriction on photography.

This above is one of my fave NO PHOTOS signs......... its made at the 'War on Terror's' prison at Guantanamo Bay on the US Military base, Cuba.......... featuring an Iguana............ weirdly I had a Guantanamo Bay T-shirt..... with an iguana on it......... :-))..... yeah....... I know........ I hardly buy any souveniers......... but I just wanted a Guantanamo T-shirt coz it struck me as totally bizarre......... and it certainly was one of my most bizarre T-shirts.

Anyway don't forget send me any photos of 'No Photo' places so we can name and shame them......... :-))
