Nothing by me on Flickr Explore since 2008.
Some of my photographs are featured on W5RAn, an online arts magazine.
One of my photographs made the cover of a book!

Thanks very much to ambientlight.ca for posting a web page summarizing Canadian Photography Laws.
Photography is still a dangerous hobby and occupation in Britain. Amateur Photographer: Photographer held by police under terrorism powers.
The Guardian: Calling the police to account "From today, it is illegal to photograph the police, despite the fact that they use increasingly aggressive techniques to record us."
The Guardian: "Are photographers really a threat?" A really good article by Bruce Schneier on photography and terrorism with quite a few links to examples of photographers getting questioned, harassed, arrested, etc.
The most ludicrous things are happening to people wielding cameras in Britain: "Camera – Terrorists need information. Observation and surveillance help terrorists plan attacks. Have you seen anyone taking pictures of security arrangements?" Metroploitan Police: If you suspect it, report it
GOOD NEWS! Stop-and-search powers ruled illegal by European court
The paranoia in (not so) Great Britain well depicted by Flickr's illegalphotos:
