I had two security gaurds and one cop meet me to tell me that I could not take photos. If someone was breaking into my car I would have to wait 40 minutes to get one cop to take a report. They said I needed a permit to take a photo. This is the one I got before they made me move on.
Update here is a video of Carlos Miller Arrested at Occupy Miami Eviction for photography.
I have been past the Transamerica Building many times but I have never noticed the base of it. What a difference it makes to walk instead of driving.
