I’m a Photographer Not a Terrorist!

I was pleased to see that some in Britain are pushing back against misuse of anti-terrorism laws to restrict photography in public places.

Like so much these days it is a difficult and complex area but I do feel that the “authorities” would like to operate under the principle that “whatever is not explicitly permitted is prohibited” whereas we prefer to think it the other way around.

Despite the plethora of “no photography” signs in Bangkok I have not had any issues with photography beyond the trivial. Certainly no involvement from the police. One of the many reasons I love Thailand is that they are more relaxed about these things. Long may it continue.
