civil liberties :: sunset threat…

Just another rather depressing story about the paranoia in this country about photographers, and plain stupidity from unthinking policing. Jeff Overs, the BBC staff photographer, who photographs for, amongst other things, the Andrew Marr show, was stopped from photographing a sunset over St Paul’s Cathedral in central London last week. He re-tells the story here, rather nicely, showing what seems to be the only way to deal with this nonsense, a firm but polite disdain.
