Photographers' bust-card screened onto a lenscloth

Very cool, I hope someone will save one for me!

The UK Amateur Photographer magazine is giving away free lenscloths silk-screened with the Photographers' Bill of Rights with its July issue. UK anti-terror legislation gave the police sweeping powers to harass photographers for shooting in public places, and to compound matters, tabloid-driven hysteria over paedophilia has seen many photographers accused to paedophilia for taking pictures of (for example) public busses and empty playgrounds. UK law enforcement heads and the new government have spoken out against the practice, but it does not seem like word has reached the copper on the street, as there are still numerous accounts of photographers being rousted for taking pictures in public.

Photographers' rights campaign spawns lens cloth launch
