A big threat to photographic freedom is looming on the horizon. We have always felt free to click pictures wherever we went, whether in a city or a hill station or even an art gallery. We therefore expect to have the same freedom when we tour abroad on holiday. Well, some people want to change that. A French member of the European Parliament by the name of Jean Cavada wanted to prevent anybody from taking and publishing pictures of buildings, monuments and sculptures without the express prior consent of the owner. Imagine the consequences of this move. It could well mean that to publish a picture of Buckingham Palace, you would have to take the permission of the Queen! Fortunately, such lunacy hasn’t occurred to our authorities, yet.
The current issue is an Accessories Special. Hopefully, you will be able to locate and buy the accessory you always knew you wanted..
