After shooting The Eye, I thought I'd have a go at snapping some snappers. Look at the concentration on this guys face.

This fella was great value. Every shot he took he pointed to get is hand in the picture, he was really persistent with it. Maybe to proove he was there, maybe to point out which building he's interested in I don't know. Hope he's got enough dof.

Ot oh, I've been caught out, there's only one way this can end….

…. in a shoot out!

Can you take my picture please?

Can I take a picture of your wonderful smile please?

This woman was so determined to get the angle she wanted, she knelt down in the face of an oncoming crowd: That's dedication! Amazingly, everyone just walked around her as if she wasn't really there - I guess they have a lot of shutterbugs round these parts. The big lesson from this shot is, don't use a Lensbaby to try and take candid photos - you just can't focus quickly or accurately enough.

Ah, some professional photographers, I think that might be Peter on the left holding his ladder. I hope he's not thinking of breaking into the Houses of Parliament.

Well, I did come up here for a meeting. In the Chancellors office no less!

      There's a ton of interest in this post - very enjoyable!! Love the Eye photos - especially #s 2 and 6. The snappers shots are all fantastic - the guy in #9 - funny capture :))) Your commentary - clever as usual!
