No Flash Photography Please

Why is it wherever you go (museums,churchs etc), there is a sigh saying "No Flash Photography Please". Yet there is a crazy bunch of tourists out there which think this doesnt apply to them.. Ahhh the annoyance!!

Right elbows at the ready

I love this photo...and your annoyance is shared. Tourists are just tourists and don't really care that their flash damages the paintings and murals.
Great angle by the way, were you nearly on the ground?

Great title! I'm not very much into museums or architecture photography, but I really dont like when people use flashes in the wrong moment. And I do "hate" when they do it in live concerts, when they're so far away from the subject!
Nice photo.

haha i know exactly what you mean. I guess in their mindset they think they have the ultimate camera, who's flash can penetrate anything, arseholes!!!

Thanks for the comment :)

....and where are the museum guards/police/stage hands when those who think that it does not pertain to them are flashing, ringing and recording. I try to use the flash as little as possible, which is what got me to look more closely at your photo.....I usually would not prefer architectural images; but yours is a definite acception. Great shot (without flash). Thanks for following directions.

I guess thats whats the Catholics were aiming for.. God is above all, and its looking down on you...

Oh! The perspective! I used to shoot in churches too (with no flash, of course, hehehe) but never got something so impressive. I really love the view of the ceiling with the feeling that it's coming down on you.
