Shadow Shot Sunday 2 – Random Shadows


This is the Tulsa US Bankruptcy Court building. I don’t know what it is, maybe it is the oil moguls but we have always had lots of bankruptcies here in Tulsa. The mottled reflections is from a high rise across the street. Yep, you guessed it, Samson Resources, a local oil company is just now coming out of bankruptcy.

I have taken lots of pictures of this building. I’ve been told by some of my instagram “friends” that when they take photographs that sometimes the guards come out and shoo them off and tell them that it is illegal to take photographs of Federal buildings. Yeah right, like maybe in Russia. Notice how tough I talk? I’d stick my camera in my pocket and move on. But I would be back. I’ve been told by church goers that it is illegal to take photos of a church without a members permission. (I said I had a members permission, they said who?, I said that they didn’t give their name.) I’ve been told by security guards at the OSU Osteopathic Hospital that it was a federal crime to take a photo of a hospital because of HIPAA. Yeah, sure buddy. Lots of security guard stupidity going on in the world out there is what I say.


This is the front of our library in downtown Tulsa.


And a perfect pattern in the gardens of one of our museums.

    Love those pattern shots! Sometimes people put on a uniform and it goes to their head. I live (in Oregon) pretty close to the Federal Courthouse — it’s not as impressive a building — but now as soon as I get back I am going to go take a picture and see what happens. (oh what the heck, it’s Eugene Oregon, I bet nobody will care. )

    When we were in Australia Irv tried to take a picture of the U.S. Embassy in Canberra. That camera got shut down real quick by the guards. Who knows? Maybe it is illegal to take a picture of a federal building.

    Great shots!

    Wonderful range of pattern styles. The last one is especially defined. Yes. I have heard of guards prohibiting photos of federal buildings, but they don’t seem to patrol the area. It seems to be a random warning.
