It was funny. I only had my compact ( which is back in for repair after just coming back from John Lewis` for first repair taht left the video button not working) but I stood next to security to take the shot , quite clearly on my own with no family present. I then aksed "Am I OK taking pictures " to which she replied "Why not?". I the n raed their notice on a poster by the bar stating " No photography without a permit on this site".  :D

Will we be breaking the law, if we vote for an 'illegal' picture?

You probably would not have got away with it, if you had used your 'proper' camera.

I bet, there were quite a few people taking photographs with 'tourist cameras,' or mobile phones.
