- United Kingdom
We all visit places of interest, be they historic or modern because they are.... of interest. Interesting things capture our attention. They rouse something within us. Things of visual beauty stir our emotions. They evoke feelings of happiness, sadness, wonder, amazement or romantic sentiment. While we can visually see things, nothing captures the moment and the memory quite like a photo can.
St Pauls Cathedral and Westminster Abbey however charge admission which is not cheap, and with it a strict no photography rule. This I feel is unjust and the reasoning behind it is total nonsense, when you are allowed to take photos in many other historical churches and cathedrals throughout the UK such as the majestic Lincoln, Bath and Salisbury cathedrals and for a far more reasonable admission fee.
Remove the strict NO photography rule for places of interest that have an admission cost or make admission FREE.
The NO Photography allowed should = Free Admission petition to Photographers was written by Simon Christopher Lord and is in the category Culture at GoPetition.
