After a very long hiatus, I've been reinfected with the photography bug thanks to acquiring a new digital SLR (some of my recent work is at http://www.privacylawyer.ca/photo or can be found on Flickr here (RSS)).
And of course, everything has to do with privacy and civil liberties, so I've also become quite interested in the recent "war against photography" (examples here, here, here and here). There are also a few interesting perspectives about photography in public places and privacy. People have been harassed for taking pictures of their own children because other children may also be included in the photos. I don't have all the answers, but it's interesting to try to keep up with the debate. To that end, I've added Photo Attorney to my RSS reader, to follow what Carolyn E. Wright has to say on the topic.
