Church of our Lady

It's another grey day today. As I was stopped at a traffic light on my way home from the Dr's office I snapped this. I was amazed at how well it turned out for a roll down the window, point, shoot and drive as the light changed. I learned that using a camera is just like using a cell phone. Oops. I had no idea and thought that since I was actually stopped and not driving it was okay. Wow. Got out of that one but don't think I will be so lucky next time. It's just that the Police Officer in the car behind me is getting started in photography so I suggested he sign up here :)
P.S. please disregard the date and time info. My camera date and time are totally messed up. I re-set them and they revert back to any date and time they feel like. Wonder if it's telling me I should be in some sunny place with a different time zone...maybe I should try that to see if it keeps the camera happy :)
what a fantastic shot . Wonder if the police would do anything here in the US? Well hope I never find out . I take pictures quite often while at lights.

Lovely composition. I like the subdued light. I didn't know using a camera when stopped in traffic was a violation. Not much of a problem here ... there's not traffic!

This is really really nice, and I am glad you didn't get a ticket. I think sitting at a light should give some leniency.

@lesip @aecasey @fullcircle
Glad you like it. Apparently it is ANY hand held electronic device that is a violation. I thought it was just talking on your cell phone while driving but apparently stopped at traffic lights or a stop in traffic of any kind you are not to use your cell phone...or camera.

Lovely shot with so much detail. I'm pleased you didn't get a ticket - I wonder how the police here would react! Great that you found out he was into photography! Maybe that helped ;)

@kwiksilver I'm pretty sure it helped. A ticket would have cost me $150

@annied Thanks Annie. I'm not sure about OZ but I know NZ is the same as here with respect to hand held devices so I guess cameras are the same.
