    That's only a fraction of it. There are movable statutes, fish tanks, and so on as well.

    I used to shop there a lot when there used to be a Disney Store & Gallery in the Forum Shops, but ever since they took them out I don't go down there much unless I want to check out the Sony store, hang out with out-of-town visitors, or it is on business. Most of the people I know with cameras would rather visit the nearby Bellagio "flower" Convservatory. However, I've thought about taking photos down there "again" ever since I purchased the 10.5mm which has been quite sometime now. The photo, like my Effiel Tower photo, did stir up a little interest in the local Flickr group.

    Agreed. The only time I was ever at the falls, it was with a disposable film camera. My shots were ok, but nothing like that pano for sure. I only wish I could have captured someone going over the falls.

    Here's a photo of the "rocking horse" outside one of the toy stores. I probably should try to do something with a couple of the lights.

    Most of the Malls over here have no photography signs at the entrances.

    Trust me. There have been many attempts joking aside. I hope to go back in winter. It is even better. this is good shot of the horse. This horse was massive.

    The enclosed Malls (the ones that are purpose built rather than a group of shops just joined together) are generally privately owned by companies like Westfield and their attitude seems to be to lump photography in with bicycle riding, skateboarding, public drunkenness and general anti social behaviour. Of course that doesn't stop thousands of blurry photos being taken on their premises every day with phone cameras but I guess it's mainly a entry clause they can use against commercial photography if they want or need to.

    Some of the malls here also don't allow photography with NON-P&S cameras though I have never noticed any signs prohibiting photography. I have seen signs targeted towards gangs, i.e. wearing hats sideways, clothing, etc. Heck, a while back some guy used a telephone-camera to take a photo of a mural inside a casino and was detained until the police showed up, i.e. they would NOT let him leave the casino. Casino security tried to claim photography wasn't allowed by law in the casino though the state gaming commission stated otherwise in an interview. The guy did get banned from the casino. Granted it was "private property", but it just shows how well "trained" the security around the local casinos and the malls is around here. Many times, it is just "selective" enforcement as well. I guess if you walk in with a D3x and look like an idiot, you can still take photos. Just don't walk in with a D40 and a 70-200mm F/2.8 VR because security may stop you.

    For that matter, I was stopped one time when I had media soft-card credentials while shooting the Grand Prix by some yahoos in a mall area when I used a crossing point to go from a public garage to a mall area supposedly in a public park to get down to the track route crossing over a public steet upon which the race was running. Hell, the idiots even stopped some of the hard-card credential holders from getting into the pit area while they let the mayor and the "dancers" go out just before the start of the race. Talk about some upset pro-photographers who follow the circuit racing. For all I know, that may be one of the reasons they didn't hold a grand prix race here the following year.

    I do know malls do not wish any commercial photography inside their premises. That said, it is not posted here at all. A friend of mine was told stop taking pictures of his daughter. He was just using a D200. I guess there is always a fine line.

    TNB. When I went to vegas, I didn't even think about what I was doing inside the casinos. I guess I could have been in trouble for this shot?

    Probably depends on the security. In general, they don't seem to care as long as it is not of the "casino floor" and "gamblers on the floor", i.e. table games, though sometimes exceptions are made for something like the "World of Poker" tournement which has been going on now. From the newspaper article I read, the reason security descended on that particular person claimed that he was taking a photo of the security cameras in the ceilings instead of the mural. However, that still wouldn't explain why I've seen some people taking photos with pro-cameras and pro-lenes while other with prosumer cameras and pro-lens have been told to quit taking photos. If I recall correctly, the reporter had also interviewed one of the other casino monguls who actually liked the idea of people taking photos just so they could get the "free" advertisement, which makes more sense to me.
