I was wandering around the petetions site again cos some are just funny.

I found this

http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/Photography/

It is properly explained on his web site.  I have a child and have taken photos in public places of my son, but I have had council officers approach me about my use of a camera.  I told them they could bugger off, they did I was bigger then them.

I recently went to my sons school play.  We could take cameras and videos, I forgot both, a sensible policy applied by a very sensible school and headmaster.

However the story detailed in this man’s web site is very worrying and indicitive of an attitude to cameras at a time when everyone has access to cameras in many formats of varying quality.

I think that a lobby from photographers is a good idea to remind people of the rights we already have.

Take a look let me know what you think.
