In Wichita, don’t take photographs of the school administration building!


On Monday April 7, 2008, I attended a news conference held at the USD 259 (the Wichita public school district) headquarters, a building at First and Water Streets. Its official name is the Alvin E. Morris Administrative Center.

After the news conference ended, I thought I would take advantage of the moment to let the budding photographer in me express his nature by taking a few photographs.

But while standing on a public sidewalk and taking a photograph of a public building, I was ordered to stop.

A uniformed USD 259 security guard came out of the building and explained that if I wanted to take pictures, I had to “speak to someone.”

Sort of takes the “public” out of the “Wichita Public Schools.”

One of the offending photographs of the Wichita school administration building. I thought it was a dramatic rendition, if I do say so myself.

    If you are taking pictures of public buildings you might be a terrorist; at least that seems to be the sentiment many different gunvernmints display across the western world.

    I’m so scared of the photographers. Please gunvernmint, keep me safe from the terrorist photographers. LOL
