Taking pictures at the airport

The TSA’s blogger Bob said yesterday on The Evolution of Security http://www.tsa.gov/blog/2009/03/can-i-take-photos-at-checkpoint-and.html that the TSA doesn’t specifically prohibit taking pictures in the airport screening area. He was quick to add that if you do happen to take photos in the screening areas you can pretty much be assured that a TSA official will approach you and ask about your photography.

“…we don’t prohibit public, passengers or press from photographing, videotaping, or filming at screening locations. You can take pictures at our checkpoints as long as you’re not interfering with the screening process or slowing things down. We also ask that you do not film or take pictures of our monitors.We don’t prohibit public, passengers or press from photographing, videotaping, or filming at screening locations.

I’ll probably not be pulling out the cameras to take pictures at the screening area or anywhere at the airport for that matter. In today’s environment it feels very weird to have cameras out at the airport.
