Two dozen Brooklyn photographers weathered snow flurries and freezing temperatures on Sunday to make a stand for photographers’ rights.

You gotta love New Yorkers.

The protest was in response to an incident that occurred a week earlier when a Metropolitan Transportation Authority police officer harassed video artist Katherin McInnis, threatening to confiscate her video camera, even though she was filming from a public sidewalk.

And that incident is the latest in a long-line of incidents involving MTA officers.

The photo below was taken by Flatbush Gardener, who gave me permission to post this photo. I like the snow flurries in this photo as well as the way that guy is standing on the railing with the sign that says, “no standing anytime”.
