I'm sure the whole situation could've been avoided if the photographer just simply state he was doing it for fun, but in my opinion, the photographer should have the right to keep information from a police officer, especially when the photographer is certain he/she is not violating any rules. From what I could tell, the photog was in a public location, doing a perfectly normal activity, and was in no way attempting to document a future territory act.

Officers always exceed their rights and think everything they dislike should be prohibited.
