I assume the "Ultra Special Goth Limited" lens comes complete with piercings. And is only available in black!

And I thought he would have gone for a steam punk version with built in grey squirrel exterminator

I was beginning to enjoy dragging people down always in the old town you have less competition

Hold on. It's one thing fighting off goths and vampires but I don't fancy taking on Daily Mail readers!

But how they are going to enforce this is beyond me. The law is really ambiguous when it comes to behaviour in graveyards, and the fact that they have allowed it in the past and that it could very definitely be seen as a public space makes me wonder what anyone could be charged with?

Dunno about charging photographers but the Daily Mail editors should be charged for appalling editing in that piece.

As per the article "Church officials have decided it is disrespectful to the dead".

That is unless they use the gravestones for their own benefit.




I wonder what George & Dorothy Maclellan's family would say about it?

Best regards

I'm no expert of Ecclesiastical Law but I imagine the charge could be desecration. I don't know when the last time someone was charged with this - it may be that burning at the stake might still be enforcable.

Don't church yards belong to the church??? So therefore private property similar to shopping centres???

It's not about whether property is public or private. It is about whether they are open to the public.

It is a confusing area (and there are lots of archaic laws any bylaws applying to graveyards) but if there is general public access then no-one can stop you taking photographs. They can ask you to leave but if you refused they would have to call the police.

no, but the 77mm would be good for portraits in a quiet pub.

There is no such thing as a quiet pub in Scarborough! There is always at least one fight going on.
