Do I look Odd?

New Anti-Terrorist Campaign

This is part of the new anti-terror campaign launched by the London Met (thanks to Boing Boing). Being a filmmaker, I’m constantly taking pictures of odd things. I know my filmmaker mates do the same thing. Now, I’ll be wondering if I look odd. It’s all a bit “1984” for me.

I have a filmmaker mate who’s of Pakistani descent. Carrying a load of fake guns on the bus is probably not a good idea, but he just didn’t think it was gonna be a problem. He had to get to the shoot (the film shoot, that is), and he didn’t have enough money for a taxi. This was before…well, before it all went a bit pear shaped.

I don’t want to be spying on my neighbor because they all look a bit odd. How the hell am I supposed to know what’s really odd?

    I truly share your feelings.

    Who is anyone here to issue a statement on what’s odd and what’s not and to claim on one being a culprit …!

    The world’s turning into a sad tale of issuing personal wars on common people :|

    So much for photography :-\
