Tourists for Terrorism

So, because I’m taking a photograph of a double-decker bus, I must be a terrorist, right? Is London becoming hostile to tourists? I have a friend out there right now who says that she’s heard of it being illegal to photograph police officers. That, combined with the scare tactics of the CCTV cameras and all the other stuff in London, makes it seem like my favorite city in the world is spiraling down a rabbit hole of paranoia.

I’m returning to London in a few days. It will be interesting to see how much things have changed in the year that it has been since I was there last. I remember Obama’s face on the cover of every paper on the Tube. I wonder what kind of images I will see now?

London, last year. Pictures like these may become illegal.

Three days.
