Woohoo! Roll Call has a great write up of our very own Walking Shtick Tours! Unfortunately, it's behind a pay wall, but if any of you have coughed up the subscription fees, go read it!

So, you go to snap a picture of some building and, all of a sudden, a security guard wanders up and demands you stop, or asks you to delete your pictures, or just inquires why you want to take a picture of the building in the first place. It happens all the time in DC.Well, this week, a Federal government, once again, affirmed that there is nothing wrong with taking pictures of their (our?) buildings. In fact, while we're on the topic, the only folks who can now hassle you about pictures is the Pentagon, especially when you are at the 9/11 Memorial. Other than that, just politely talk to the guard and move on. If you a shutterbug and what to know where you stand legally, print out this handy guide before you come. (DCist)
