The War On Street Photography And A Strategy

The war on street photography | Henry Porter | Comment is free |

One strategy to stick it to these bastards would be for as many people as possible, as often as possible, to be seen to be taking photographs and filming in public (and especially pointing their cameras at the cops and their associated jobsworths) and then revealing their cameras to be either inoperative or without film/recording cards/disks, etc. Then they can claim they weren't taking pictures at all. As far as I know it's not even remotely illegal not to take photographs.

Presumably the cops would then dream up a new offence of 'appearing to be taking photographs', etc.
