I got reprimanded for taking this picture on CTA property, but I wanted to share how happy I am with the improvements at Howard.

Smirking CTA employee: You can't take pictures on CTA property without a permit.
Me, confused by the smirk: Are you serious?
CTA employee: Yes.
Me: I'm just impressed with the work, and wanted to put it on my blog.
CTA employee: [smirk]

I half expected him to smash my camera, or at least watch me erase the picture from the memory card. He just waited for me to put the camera away, then brought his permanent half-smile back to the turnstile.

Seriously? Why on earth would you need a permit? For taking a picture on public property? That's the craziest thing I've ever heard of. Next time tell that smug asshole that your tax dollars pay for both his salary AND all the improvements that you want to photograph!
