Encountered the same sort of thing attempting to photograph certain exteriors of well known London sites such as the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge. The tripod is a tipoff that a person making a photograph might be more serious than the average bloke.

Have run into problems around our nation's capitol as well - mostly in the Capitol Hill area. There the issue may be less protection of the franchise and more security. Jim

The Park Ranger noticed all the camera equipment in my car and told me that the State/Park retains the "copryright" on the trees there (they only grow in this one tiny coastal area of California) and that photographers are not allowed to take photographs of them for any type of commercial work, including art work they would sell without paying a licensing fee.
