The red telephone box, seen a lot around London, is a public telephone kiosk, designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in 1924. It has become one of London's trademarks, even though it's also found in ex-British colonies around the world.
To get this photo with my 50mm lens, I had to keep creeping closer and closer to the line of riot police (and fire), whilst down on one knee. I expected one of them to run over and start beating me with a baton. This would have at least given more credence to my shots. I loved how imposing they look silhouetted against the flames.

Again, with my riot photos, this looks far more awesome on black. (Press L)
