How's ATL These Days: Hassle-free?

Mon Jan 20, 2003 12:35 am

This coming weekend I'll be all around Hartsfield. A few months ago a post on here said they were hassled by security. So how is it now? Parking decks okay? Inside the terminal concourses? And where can you shoot around the perimeter?

Anybody wanna meet up?  Smile

I was at the parking deck last in November and had no problems. I was inside the terminal in December and had almost no problems. When i say "almost" I mean that one TSA guy told me it was illegal to take pics, but he walked away and i continued.

When I lived in ATL I got bitched at for taking photos off the parking deck. They told me that I would have to go to talk to the ATL Airport Cops about it. The response I got back was "Absolutely not, it is against TSA regulations to take pictures from parking decks." I laughed, what a crock of shit.

Yeah, whatever. Sounds like the typical excuse they always use with minor variations. "It's against federal law". I think having an IQ less than 20 is a requirement for 75% of airport employees especially ones dealing with security.
