My experience with SFMOMA is quite different. I shot quite a bit in

the atrium with my M8 with no difficulty at all. I was observed to be

doing this by staff who weren't bothered at all.


boingboing has its own agenda, one I'm often not too sympathetic with,

and I don't doubt they will do what they can to over-state the case.


I was careful not to shot in the areas where photography was

prohibited even though I desperately wanted an image of a hanging

paper sculpture in one of the galleries that screamed to be

photographed as it was presented.


We don't really know what happened - only one side of it and we all

know that some photographers can be self-serving liars on good days.


So I'm suggesting there's more to this than we understand.
