Ken Duncan is frustrated too !
Some of you may have already seen or read these but for myself it was great to stumble across a couple of articles written by Kenny D last night. He expresses his frustration about the over regulation of things and photography as well !
I dislike conformity and over regulation – Victoria and the eastern seaboard are so over regulated by ‘do gooders’ and with the mentality of ‘someone else has to be responsible or held accountable for everything’ that it drives me absolutely nuts ! It’s part of the reason I love to escape to the far flung and less populated parts of the country every year… Over regulated and ridiculous bureaucracy is alive and kicking all over the place now it seems… I go to my local beach and there are so many things that you aren’t allowed to do that they need 2 signs to fit it all on.. there are more things you aren’t allowed to do than you are ! Perhaps it would be easier, cheaper and less obtrusive if they just put up a sign saying what we could do ? There are now signs every 100m warning you that you could fall off a cliff – geebus,what an astonishing revelation ! And all this costs money and requires resources… I’m going to put up a sign “WARNING – GRAVITY KILLS ! ” seriously… Now there’s a T-shirt ! or another “Natural Selection is Dead”.
I understand population pressure = more idiots = more regulation etc etc… but sheesh !
I once got interrogated by an NT parks and wildlife employee for my right to photograph a storm cloud that was sitting over Kakadon’t NP and how I didn’t have and required a permit to take a photograph of it… seriously…
I’m with ya on this one Ken !
