At least not if you're from Hong Kong. It seems mainland Chinese and other foreigners are welcome - at least so says the security guard at Dolce & Gabana's flag ship HK store.

Hundreds of people turned up there yesterday to disagree with them, forcing the store to shut.

Gear Canon 5DIII + Fuji X-T2 + lenses + a plastic widget I found in the camera box.

It's going to be difficult to stop people from photographing the front of a store, and bringing it to peoples attention is just stupid.

Depending on how much of an arse the manager was i might have flicked on video mode and recorded everything he said and then posted it to youtube...

I find it funny that people react to those of us with the big cameras taking nice pictures, but think nothing of the hundreds of other people who have cell phone cameras that they use to take pictures of anything and everything, which are far more discrete...

My question is - why would I want to photograph their store?

The article on Yahoo (that you linked to) was quite disappointing. A couple of paragraphs? That's a joke! I'm sure there was much, much more that could have been written. I was hoping for a much fuller, lengthier story. Seems like all they wanted to do was report a few quick facts and move on to other news.

Hopefully there will be a many-page follow-up to this story, with full transcripts of interviews with several of the corporation's executives, board members, and public relations officials - as well as the director of security that is the offending officer's direct supervisor.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Why would the media pay as much attention to it as we would?

Because it's a story. If you do something, then do it right. Really right. Otherwise, don't bother doing it at all. Any human endeavor is worthy of excellence. Didn't your momma ever tell you, "whatever you do, always do your best"?

That's just not how the media industry works. Not every story it bound to win a Pulitzer. Not every reporter is passionate about the story he or she was assigned to cover. Not every story will make the editor's cut.

Frankly, I don't think a lot of people would care about this story if it was given a full page report. It's a rights issue, sure... but just not newsworthy unless someone gets hurt.
