Ok! some photojournalism....with the theme free I decided to focus on the slightly more pedestrian intepretation of this as gratis as opposed to liberty. There so many free things in London - museums, galleries and now even bicycles, so when I noticed the challenge, I decided I would look out for one of the new free yellow bikes, but no such luck, I therefore had to go with the easier option of taking a shot of one of the two free newspapers launched this week (London Lite and TheLondonpaper). You should see the eagerness to offload these, just walking down Turnmill Street I had at least 6 of the distributors thrust their newspapers under my nose, including one Naija man handing out London Lite..each time agressively declaring it as "LIIIIIIEET!"... I just HAD to take a second copy off him! I'm not sure what the business model for this actually is, it can't all be based on advertising...can it?
Here's an idea - challenging all London Shutterchancers...first person to get a decent shot of the free yellow bikes around London! http://www.borrowthebike.com/
