I spent yesterday evening clanking around in an old van with a high-powered digital projector sticking out of a hole in its roof — the famous Illuminator van — and its crew, documenting a series of projections around the city to coincide with 350.org‘s Twitter campaign to #EndFossiFuelSubsidies. Here are some of my better images from the excursion.
They say the best camera is the one you have with you, and the cam in the iPhone 4S is pretty impressive for the dinky little thing that it is. It also automatically GPS tags every image you shoot. I’m using it to commit the 8th Deadly Sin of Americana.

Here’s one from the middle of a media scrum at the Klimaforum, the ‘alternative’ meeting venue during the 2009 COP15 climate talks in Copenhagen. Nasheed was the first head of state to arrive at the talks and gave a speech at an event hosted by 350.org, the climate activist organisation.
Just found this while clearing junk out of the archive. Go ahead, spot the Statue.
