Last week in New York City, a fan of trains was arrested for photographing a train. It might be funny if it didn’t keep happening.

Robert S. Taylor of Brooklyn was taking photos for fun last Thursday in a subway station. Police saw him and cited him for unauthorized photography, disorderly conduct/unreasonable voice and impeding traffic.

The charge of unauthorized photography – a crime that doesn’t exist – has already been dropped, Taylor says.

“It’s almost embarrassing,” Taylor says. “It was a waste of everybody’s time.” [via PDN]

Take note: I broke the Golden Rule of Landscape Photography–only photograph at dawn and dusk. Alas, I was on my way home this afternoon from an interview in Visalia, California when I stopped to take note of this majestic beauty. If I were to sit around and wait for dusk she would have been long gone.

Take note: I did obey the Rule of Thirds. Notice how the bottom horizontal line bisects the train track while the vertical lines bisect the two foremost engines.
