[quote:Anonymous Coward 25209897:MV8yMDExNzY1XzMzODA1ODI5XzI2NzYyRDNC] [quote:Anonymous Coward 13263762:MV8yMDExNzY1XzMzODA1NDA2XzhERTVBQjRD] No, I was on a ferry once and these Arabic type guys were taking photos of the door. Plain creepy, no tourist takes pics of the doors. They photo each other and the skyline/shoreline. For the folks who were riding that ferry every day to work that was a very, very creepy thing. It's not all some fantasy conspiracy. There are weird things happening everywhere. You think all those lose airplane seats were an accident? Or all the forest fires? The world is sick.

When my mom traveled to Italy she took photos of doors as well. [/quote]
A man who snapped photos of a brewing storm last month received a visit Friday from an FBI Agent, inquiring why he would want to take such photos.
Michael Galindo explained that he was simply volunteering for the National Weather Service.
And FBI Agent David Pileggi seemed to be satisfied with that response.
But Galindo was left wondering whether he now has a permanent FBI file.
“He told me, ‘you’re not a threat and you are doing a public service but just be careful next time,’” Galindo said in a telephone interview with Photography is Not a Crime.
The problem arose because Galindo happened to be taking photos near the Lyondell Refinery outside of Houston on September 13, even though he was never standing on the refinery’s property.
Someone from the refinery spotted him and called police, whom apparently arrived after he had left.
Police then contacted the local FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, which bills itself as “nation’s front line on terrorism.”
Galindo told the agent that he volunteers for a NWS program called Skywarn that trains citizens to monitor the weather in the name of “protecting lives and property.”
