By the way, many large US cities require buying a license just to use a tripod on public property. You have to show proof of insurance. Tripods are considered to be tripping hazards for pedestrians. While this may just be a way to increase revenues, it is lawful.

Out of curiousity, which cities still require this?  I know New York City relaxed its tripod rules for non-commercial photography a while back, and even before that the permit was free.  Similarly, in D.C. on National Park Service property, a permit is required for commercial shoots, and security staff will sometimes demand the permit from anyone who looks like they know what they are doing.  But that permit is also free for 1-2 people.

I miss the days when I used to be nostalgic.
