I am contributing a portrait to help raise awareness on the on-going crackdown on photographers in the UK, US and Europe.
Here is the photo on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/christianpayne/3732831231/

I also blogged about this last year.. http://ourmaninside.com/2008/06/04/do-i-look-like-a-terrorist/
I have so enjoyed your photo’s. A couple of weeks back, I spent a good hour looking and re looking at the flickr slideshow you did. You are so generous with your thoughts, photo’s and ‘documentation’. If there is anything us non-photographers can do to support your efforts in stopping the crackdown on all our freedom to document our stories and lives, please let us know.
Hi Chrissy, thank you for your kind words. I think if you have a camera or even a phone that can take pictures, you will be susceptible to the same issues the ‘professionals’ are experiencing.I guess we just have to keep resisting silly laws and keep raising awareness.
