    Getting back into doing film noir shots at night again:



    The big bad city looks hip at night with its deep blacks and silver whites. The time on the clock is 7:45...PM...the time when the night trippers and hipsters start stirring...and 15 minutes before the Port locked the gate and left my ass out over the water all night.

    Thanks. Not really a project. Just something that is close. I haven't really come close to getting the shot I want. It will be tough, just posted this reply on my flickr page:

    Last weekend I went a lot closer (this one is from across the Mississippi River), right up to their fence pretty much. Their security guy came by and said:

    "Even though it isn't illegal to photograph the refinery, we do take down all information and pass it on to the FBI."

    I sat there smiling as he was telling me. I am sure all the local St Paul terrorists are going to be setting up their 8x10 cameras on a Saturday morning trying to figure out how to blow the place up. It really didn't bother me at all. He said I did have to move across the street and if I packed up and left he wouldn't pass my info on. Moving across the street would ruin the photo so I just left.

    Were you on the property? I hope you didn't give him a damn thing. I would have told him politely to bugger off.

    I guess technically I was, at least the way he worded it made it sound that way. I was outside their fence right next to the road. I figured someone would stop. Had I crossed to the other side like he 'suggested' then the road (and trucks) would have been in the shot. I should set my camera up some where else, focus on the hyperfocal distance - have the camera ready on the tripod in the back seat - roll in - jump out - frame and take the photo all in one minute .

    edit: oh! And then send them a copy if it turns out .

    There was a problem like this at the Shell refinery in Geelong where I used to live. The photographer was harassed by security and threatened with confiscation of his equipment and calling the police. He took it to the local paper and the local member of parliament. Shell ended up having to apologise because it wasn't against the law and he wasn't on their property even though he was on the grass verge beside their fence. Remember they only own what's inside their fence, but if everyone can see it, you can photograph it. Unless it's a defence base of course.

    That's probably a good point. I am not sure exactly where their property ends. I don't want to cause a big thing either. If I do feel like going back and am for sure off the property I am sure I'll be more reluctant to leave. Problem is avoiding all the power lines and light poles! There are only so many places to setup.
