I joined the London Photowalk today and had a walk around the Olympic Park. Whilst I have no doubt all will be ready for the big day it was probably too early to walk around expecting any photographic action. However, as always, something usually comes along and past a derelict tyre fitting premises. The steel barrier was ajar when I arrived so I joined the 4 or 5 other photographers here. Made a few HDR pictures and continued on the walk. I had gone about 20 yards when the police arrived to give those unlucky enough to be still in the premises a dressing down. When we walked past later in the afternoon the premises had been secured again with some blue string 😉
That is not to say that security isn’t tight down there. Quite the contrary – hi-vis yellow jackets and large alsations abound.
