CARP, the Carpenters Road campaign, was holding a film show outside the Carpenters Arms. I had wandered off and found a blocked off road with a sign which said 'Welcome to the Olympic Park'. It was so ridiculous that I decided to take a photo. Just as I was doing this a police car pulled up and a policeman leaned out and asked:
"What are you up to fella?"
"Fella?" I asked.
"Yes, fella, it's a term of endearment! What are you doing?"
"I'm taking a photograph."
"What of? Given the sensitivity of the area."
"This blocked off road."
"It is now."
"Yes, now it's a blocked road."
"Because it says 'Welcome to the Olympic Park'. It's funny"
"Oh, ok. I wasn't trying to be funny."
Here's the welcome to the Park:
