    Wow - that sounds like quite a confrontational encounter. I wonder if the security dude was suffering from delusions of grandure? You know, the guard on the company gate who feels like he owns the company. I'd take the view that I was speaking to the wrong people. I'd find out who owns the park (and employs the PM company), find out if they would like to see a wonderful gigapan of their carefully maintained property, and if 'yes' ask them to clear it with the PM company. Just my 2ยข. Mind you, my experience is that it is a lot of work to sort this out, and often the answer is 'no', but if I try often enough with enough different organisations then I eventually get someone who says 'yes'. I am however still waiting for someone to say 'yes, will $1,000 be enough to cover your expenses?' :-)

    When I took my first GigaPan of the WaterWall, the security dude was adamant that I not set up a tripod on the WaterWall lawn or property and I asked him if I could go ask the property owner if I could. His response was basically that he was following rules that property management gave him and that PM will always back him up if I went further with it. That is why I took the hand-held, and may return this Sunday to take another.

    Do they really say 'period'? Does it say this on a sign somewhere? Bizarre. Are they worried that the feet of the tripod will damage the lawn? Or is it a case of health and safety gone mad like on UK railway stations where there is a concern that someone may trip over the legs of the tripod and hurt themselves? I had to do a lot of work to get permission to take these panos tinyurl.com/l3bafu Will open in
a new tab or window with a tripod. I suppose you would hurt yourself if you fell under a moving train, but I'm not sure falling under a moving golf cart would be such a problem.
