Re: Flash photography (was Re: coins)

  Somebody please explain to me the reasoning behind this flashbulb rule. As far
  as I know cameras didn't come around until the mid-1800s. I would be willing
  to bet returning crusaders did a bit of smoking. The Hookah pipe is quite old.

I wasn't there, but I'd hazard a guess it's the modern sensibilities
intruding on the game.

Flash bulbs are annoying to those they are aimed at.  Smoke is annoying (and
unhealthy) and cannot be aimed.
