Kuwait Bans DSLR-Camera Photo-Taking in Public – Shoot a Stranger, Go To Jail? – But Accredited Journalists Excepted

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

Just try to use your biggish digital single-lens-reflex camera on the streets of Kuwait these days. It ain’t easy, brother.

Now, I don’t think that you could ban DSLR use in San Francisco. There’d be a rebellion or something.

Cause if something happens, it didn’t happen unless it was recorded somehow – that’s how we look at it.

Our Folsom Street Fair 2009 was a great day for walkies with the slave, past the guy with the Nikon, past the guy with the Canon, past the Leather Etc…(!) store…:

SFPD Crackdown on Up Your Alley Fair 2009 is Due to ZombieTime Photo Essay

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

Per writer Matthew S. Bajko, the SFPD is pointing to photos from famous Berkeley-based zombietime website as evidence that things got a little out of hand at last year’s Up Your Alley Fair in the SoMA area. From today’s copy of the Bay Area Reporter:

“The fair promoters are the ones who have to take charge; this is their event. If they don’t run it properly, they will not be having it again,” said SFPD Lieutenant Nicole M. Greely, who oversees street closure issues for the police department’s Southern Station. “If this event doesn’t go well, we can’t continue to approve their permit unless it is safe for everyone involved.”

So it looks like this event will be on double secret public probation for 2009 at least.

A photo from ZT (ID’ed incorrectly as ZombieReport.com in the B.A.R.) used to show that Miller Beer  / MillerCoors/ SABMiller advertising last year was subdued compared to prior years:

Here’s a link to the somewhat-NSFW, somewhat censored version of Zombie’s report on UYAF ’08. How this all will shake out in 2009 Remains To Be Seen.

The Up Your Alley Fair will be held on Sunday, July 26, 2009 from 11AM to 6PM. The fair is located in San Francisco’s South of Market district on Dore Alley between Folsom and Howard Streets. We expanded to the adjoining block of Folsom Street between 9th and Juniper Streets and on to Tenth St. in 2008 to give the crowds some breathing room.
