WTF

'What do you think you're doing with thaт camera over there?!'..

 

The 18-55mm kit zoom is not exactly 'telephoto' at its longest, making it hard to remain unnoticed. I realise I've collected more 'Gotcha!' shots than true candids :(

 

This beats-by-dre -wearing guy was particularly unhappy with my intrusion, but never told me. About 10 mins later (after taking a dozen of other random shots) I was approached by a fully armed policeman, who wanted to know why I am taking photos around the station.

'Why, is it forbidden?' - I asked - 'I saw no signs to that effect?'

'Well, no, it's not forbidden' - the policeman said - '..but a member of the public has complained about someone with a camera behaving suspiciously...'

 

I didn't get arrested att he end, but was reminded of the power of anonymous 'members of the public' who can send you to jail for terrorism if you're not nice with them :)
