Just wondering if anyone has been affected by the riots over here in the UK? Might make some interesting photography...

Hmmm... I thought it might inspire me to do some artwork but I am so ashamed I just kinda wanna forget that these people exist. I know there's a pretty well made photoshop thread of rioters in unlikely situations.

Yeah I feel the same: embarrassed to be human sometimes. Saying that, when I was a kid I was pretty poor, well actually very poor, and if I had known I could have got away with getting a free computer game or something I can't honestly say I wouldn't have done it. Sad to admit, and I certainly wouldn't do anything like that now, but things have changed for me as I am no longer starving and lacking basic clothing.

What gets me is people think this is some political thing. These people are just poor and opportunistic. I guess you could blame society and governments for the divide in wealth, but short of having a communist regime things are sadly always going to be that way.

Oh well! Smile

I was shocked to see what had happened over there. Not so much that it "happened" but with everything going on in the world currently I guess I assumed it would happen in the US first.
I am not a journalist but if I was close I might of had to shoot a little for my own collection.
