Stood in the freezing cold when taking this picture. Stuck in my own world and thought myself very lucky to have no one around for this shot. Except I was surprised to find at least 50 riot police coming up behind me! Unbeknown to me the area was empty leading up to the violent student protests! Some have asked if this image has been stitched or enhanced. I appreciate any feedback and take this one as a big compliment. This is the actual picture I took, and I have used no enhancements. - Photograph by Simon Ingram , My Shot
