It has been a while since I wanted to go back to « La Défense » neighborhood to take some picture of the buildings. After a last minute twitter meeting with @flayks, we took our tripod and left for « La Défense ».
We spent 3 hours shooting in the night before the police came and told us that photography with tripod was not allowed without specific authorization … but we didn’t really got why…
I went back home and did some research. It seams that other photographer had the same problem in many different place of the french capital… the police officer always invoking another reason.
Finally I found what looks like an official letter that justify the fact that you are allowed to take picture in french streets with a tripod ! (unless you are a crew of 10 or more people)
