Casino Parking, Reno, NV

Casino ParkingI got run off the premises by security guards right after shooting this at a casino in Reno, NV that shall remain nameless. As those boys crankily marched over to confront me and my tripod... I thought of all the photographers' stories of not being allowed to shoot in a public place. Having their camera confiscated. Being harassed, even arrested.  It's stupid. But there you have it.  Luckily, I'm an actress. So I became my mom. The nicest, sweetest, most innocent person with the loveliest demeanor you'll ever find. Geniune. And never took "No" for an answer.  She always said "Kill 'em with kindness". Which I did. A confrontation that started with the action words: scold, harrass, scowl and bluster... ended with smiling, helping, waving and have-a-great-evening-ing. Thanks Mom.

  1. Hahah way to take a stand! And that is totally the way to get out of trouble. I have been caught cutting the ropes at skiing resorts sooo many times now, and always get off by talking about how much fun I’m having. Kind of funny how that works. The picture was definitely worth it!

  2. Amazing view in this picture and the story to go with it is great,it is true you attract more bees with honey than vinegar.But for myself,i always no excuses,use manners and treat people with kindnesss,And i have been repaid ten fold, Great post
