I know what you are saying. I was taking photos of all the signs of rules in the park that I thought were excessive, so to make a story. Curiously, a maintenance type person drove up in his utility truck and asked why I was taking photos. Initially, I didn't feel like I need to have an explanation since it was a public park and I was not breaking any laws. But, I didn't want to challenge his questioning at that time so I said, I'm a photographer.

What did he say back?

If that was a public park, I don't think he has any business asking that (in my opinion), but he certainly can ask. People are just touchy these days and have no discernment as to what's dangerous an what's not dangerous. Even if a Taliban guy were taking pictures of those signs, what could possibly be the harm? Again - discernment is very lacking.
