  • Photographers rights rally on Saturday

    I will almost certainly be covering the rally in Trafalgar Square on Saturday, which starts at noon. See:

    http://www.yelp.co.uk/events/london-...ot-a-terrorist

    I just hope the weather is OK!

    Is anyone else here likely to go?

          Bit of a stressful start as I left the house sans phone (and internet access!) so missed my preferred train, but now on a later but faster one so will only be delayed slightly. Bit grey today, but it's dry and not too cold!

          More soon...

            Wow, there are easily 1,000 protesters here. Already bumped into several journos, including the editor of What Digital Camera and Amateur Photographer's news editor. And there was minor scuffle with some PCSOs. More on the way...

              An hour after the mass gathering started (apparently it shouldn't be referred to as a 'rally') there ar still hundreds here.

              I have video interviewed several people and will publish these and a photo gallery of the event later today

                      Its funny to see so many people with their hands in the air in the first shot and in the second one, there are plenty of Canons

                        If you look at the first one more closely - there are 179 Pentax visible but only 153 Canon. :b

                        Perhaps you didn't notice many of the Pentaxians because several were using their pancakes.

                              A German student studying in England was also adamant about her rights as an amateur photographer today:
