  • London Riots (Hackney) 8/8/11
    Riot Fever
  • On my way back home I realised some unusual activity and confused/worried looks on people's faces. I look up and notice three helicopters flying near by. Once I reached home, I switched on the news and discovered that Riots broke loose in an area VERY close to me. First thought was to go and photograph of course!
