Forbidden – Prohibido Tomar Fotografias – No Photography

Everywhere, things are forbidden. When I travel, I sometimes takes photographs of the signs forbidding photographs.

No Photography

No photography in one of the few museums in which I wanted to shoot. Museo de Soldedad was one of the quirkiest museums that I visited in Oaxaca. El Museo anexo al la Basílica de Nuestra Señora de la Soledad.

The now universal symbol for No Photography.

The most common forbidding sign was No Flash.

No Photography, No Flash, No cell phone, No food + drink, No Caps, and my favorite here: No sunglasses.

What? No sunglasses?

Now, No Flash is joined by No Tripod, No Stroller, No Cigarette, and the excellent No Submarine Sandwich.

    soooo great! I love the “inconvenient state” that is mentioned. How do I know? I often feel inconvenient.
    Also the sub sandwich, so annoying, I love entering places with my sub.
    And the sunglasses???? Maybe God wants to see your eyes!!!!

      perhaps the sunglasses and cap are to mask one’s inconvenient state?

    This is sooo Kenesque. I would be dissapointed if there was not a series as unique as this from this expedition.
