i sometimes get asked if i ever get in trouble whilst taking photos. well, mostly i avoid confrontation as much as possible, although i did get chased off by the security guards outside the gherkin recently.
this photo had potential to be a bit more exciting. the guy on the floor is a drunk homeless type (street embassador as i like to call them). to his right, just out of frame were too conscious drunks, and it was them i was worried about.
assuming they hadn’t been there, i would have laid on the ground and zoomed in on the union jack of his trousers with big ben in the distance. but i thought his friends might jump on me so i got this shot instead.
sorry about that.
