Delete the photo?

Thankfully, in spite of having a nice camera, and taking pictures of random stuff, and doing so in London, I have never been stopped. Yet...

But my camera has wifi, and thanks to a new mifi it seems I can have the camera upload the pictures as I take them. Obviously set to "small" mode. 21Mpix of raw would be both slow and expensive :-)

Now all I need is some arsehole to try and s.44 stop me and ask me to delete a picture!


  1. If you do get stopped it'll now be under s43 as s44 has been suspended http://photographernotaterrorist.org/2010/07/section-44-suspended/

  2. I had not spotted the demise of s.44. That is really good news... So just need some arse to s.43 stop me now :-)

  3. According to The Register (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/07/27/met_police_stephenson/) you might well still be stopped as if s.44 was in force...

  4. Nasty, but the idea that the pictures will already be on a server somewhere by the time they stop me is quite fun and could make for an amusing conversation.

  5. A WiFi link to a SSD drive in a colleague's bag would be good. Hi-res saved straight away. If you get stopped, your colleague simply walks away.

    Actually the fact that you were buying an eye-fi card suggests you've already thought of this.

A sign of the times

There is an old road sign on Belmont Road, Abergavenny. Old, and rusty, and not even that easy to read. It was worse, it was covered in ivy,...
