    I love so many things about this – as a photograph is it really, really strong AND it is perfect commentary of life under big brother!

  • it feeds perfectly into, my well developed sense of paranoia :)

    Commentary, yes – but photoshop? Fancy dress? Mr. Camerahead is keeping off the rain? If this is real, it’s bizarre – but apt sign of the times. Kind of personifies your security camera…

  • No photoshop here…no photoshop for ages now. This bridge is overlooking the Southbank of the Thames, were the ‘static mimes’ gather (mainly at weekends) for the tourists . Get your picture taken standing next to someone in a fish costume, sitting on a bicycle or a Pirate from the Caribbean…..and leave a donation.
    I can’t think anything could top this in my anti-CCTV fetish/rants :))

    thank you for posting this shot – its a brilliant portrayal of London

  • Thanks Angela, its almost enough to make me wear a cap, as a disguise. But wearing a cap means being stopped by the police more often (for looking suspicious).
