Thomas Hawk has written some blog posts recently about the current anti-photography anti-terror campaign in the UK, but it’s not just the cross-Atlantic neighbors to the east that have issues with unreasonable photographer suspicion. Last summer there was quite a buzz surrounding two “Middle-Eastern looking” men who were seen taking pictures on the Washington State Ferries.
Turns out that they weren’t terrorists, but rather ordinary businessmen who were just interested in the ferries.
On an unrelated note, I’m aware there are some issues when attempting to page back through previous blog posts. I’m currently looking into the problem and hope to have it resolved shortly.
