There are numerous locales here that won't allow it . . . usually because 
it blocks access to something, or clogs up pedestrian traffic, or creates a 
"trip hazard."  Under those conditions, a monopod is better than nothing at 
all.  I also look for solid objects on which to brace the camera . . . 
sometimes with my hand or a "bean bag" between the body/lens and whatever 
I'm bracing it against.

I've also had a couple occasions in which the use of a tripod results in a 
"prima facie" assumption the user of it is a professional doing "stock" or 
"commercial" work.
