A Gap in sensibility

I was shooting flash photos of my one-year-old girl in Gap yesterday with my D40. I started snapping them over on the baby side of the store and followed her over into the adult half of the store through the wide connecting corridor. My wife was shopping a few feet from us at this point when a woman representing the store asked me not to shoot photos in the store. I asked why (more than once.) She said it’s “a legality” and offered no other data.

I honored her request and stopped shooting pictures. I made no effort to put my camera away.

Who else has experienced this with any retailers?
