Looks like the cops had a sense of humor. Could have ended badly or embarrassingly. I wonder how the tripod was being carried?

Should we proactively start to outfit our tripod spike tips with red rubber tips?

 :p

Probably being carried like a machine gun - however one does that.

Never trust tiny white girls with tripods. They're usually the ones packing heat ;-)a

I've probably used my tripods more in that county than all others combined, due to The Strasburg Railroad being my favorite vacation destination. I'll be more careful next time!

What would happen if someone was using a gunstock style camera mount for stability?


A photograph is worth a thousand words, but Photoshop can produce a thousand lies. Photo editing allowed. I need all the help I can get.

Nothing, if you paint a big red tip on it! (an L lens red ring isn't visible enough, in case you were wondering)
