It seems that the authorities think that photographers are terrorists now. The BBC has highlighted a growing number of people being stopped by police for nothing more than taking pictures of buildings or in stations.
The Met even have a poster campaign going.
Who’s next? Shoppers? Drivers?
Seriously, if someone wants to take a photo of a building they will, and they are hardly likely to get their digital SLR out with a tripod. Some of the best photos are taken ‘covertly’ on the street to capture people in a natural state rather than posing. Is that going to be outlawed?
