G20 Police Riot Squad
An interesting afternoon at the G20 protest near the Bank of England, plenty of opportunities to take photographs of people.
In situations like this you must keep an eye out to ensure your personal safety. I took my cheaper camera the Canon 350D
Any trouble and violence was limited to a small minority of people. Generally a festive atmosphere with the full spectrum humanity present; even Gandalf from the Lord of the Rings complete with staff
I was corralled within the Police cordon and not allowed to leave. However I successfully located a gap and was able to leave after about an hour and half.
