Sim, a fotografia não é um crime. Centenas de fotógrafos amadores e profissionais preenchem o álbum no Flickr através da campanha que o British Journal of Photography lançou chamada "Not a crime" afirmando com orgulho que uma objectiva não atira balas, e que um tripé tem apenas vagas semelhanças com uma metralhadora.

"Police routinely invoke anti-terror legislation to prevent photographers from carrying out their work, and photojournalists are constantly filmed at public gatherings and their details kept on an ever-growing database. Tourists, particularly foreign tourists, are also targeted by police, as was the case with an Austrian father and son recently who made the mistake of photographing a building of an extremely sensitive nature—Walthamstow bus station. Put simply, Britain has become a no-photo zone, and so if you fail to comply, you may find yourself liable to attack, arrest or harassment. Recognising that Britain is not the only country where such a draconian anti-photographer culture is developing, the British Journal of Photography is beginning an international visual campaign to raise awareness."
