In deep diving into where you can't take photos and that perfect selfie shot. I found that around the world you can't take any photos inside Westminster Abbey to "retains the sacred and intimate atmosphere of the building", The Almo is filled with history but no picture taking of any kind is allowed inside, The Pentagon where you can take pictures outside at the memorial but none allowed inside and many more places that I found interesting. See the full list here.

  • The Van Gogh Museum
  • Taj Mahal
  • The Statute of David
  • Buckingham Palace
  • Big Cats in New York

Where in Illinois is it Illegal to take photos?

There is really only one place where you will be fined if you're ever caught taking photos and that is any railroad in Illinois. If you are caught violating the railroad law you could end up with the max fine of $500.

It is generally prohibited for anyone to walk, drive or ride along the right-of-way or rail yard of any railroad. Unlawful trespass does not apply to passengers on trains, persons entering the property to protect human life, persons crossing at farm crossings, anyone having written permission and representatives of state and Federal governmental agencies in the performance of their official duties.

If you're planning on a senior picture on a railroad track or just a selfie in general just make sure you know the law so you are not giving a hefty fine. No picture is worth a fine or worse an accident.
