But why is the first reaction to legal public photography one of threat?

You could have asked the "gardener" that question.

Proliferating thoughts!  I wonder how a "gardener's" request can grow into a serious concern about photography being considered a terrorist act.

I've been asked to take my camera elsewhere on various occasions, including a priest asking me to leave the church grounds. By the way, be prepared for aggression -- or, at least, dirty looks -- when doing "street photography."

If the captured image becomes our "property," perhaps we should be humbly mindful of the subject matter.
