    Big shaft to photographers

    A law is being passed over in the UK saying that if you are caught photographing a police officer you can get slapped with a hefty fine and up to 10 years in prison. Also a lot of stuff going on about not being allowed to photograph people in public places.

    How much do you think they'll enforce this? How do you think this will effect street photography?

    Wonder what newspapers are going to do to get around this as they say even press won't be excluded.

    Seems like a huge contradiction considering the UK is known for a ridiculous amount of security camera which basically photograph millions of citizens and officers daily.

    Here's an article from 4 years ago but I haven't anything about it changing.

    If you're taking photos of cops, you're doing it wrong.

    Passed out from standing haha

    That was taken during a ceremony when the queen rides by in her carriage to go and open Parliament. He was one of the guards that lined the road. I didn't think you could actually fail at just standing still on a side of a road- but he did...

    you would be surprised. When i was in my special ops training some of the other guys would lock their knees during endurance drills(standing up straight not moving for hours at a time) on days they didn't feel like doing them. You lock your knees blood circulation slows a few minutes later and you passout. No more standing, and you get to hang out with the nurses in medical.
