    You won't be able to get a passing delivery van partially covering the pub.

    There's nowhere near enough bollards and red & white plastic fencing around to ensure your angle of shot gets most of it in.

    I suppose you could try putting Vaseline on the lens of your camera to ensure it looks like its been taken out of a dirty bus window.

    A couple of people appear to have been using this trick for a while now.

    So no STOP TAKING PHOTOS OF PUBS at least until lockdown eases.
    Just submitted a photo of this place (what? a wine bar, on a site named Pubs Galore?! I hear you all cry...) and realised that there was a reflection of myself in my nice pink jumper in one of the windows, so had to go for a 'Take 2'.

    That's why you should wear camouflage when doing pub photography.

    Trying to catch up with some local(ish) pub photographs whilst we are out for our daily exercise, and have had no bother. Indeed, any comments have just been of the shared: "such a shame it's not open, we could all do with a pint" variety.

    Given the number of people out on Primrose Hill (and doubtless many more over the hedge in Regent's Park) once again having picnics and chatting in groups of more than half a dozen, whilst the police glide past on the paths doing nothing, I doubt anyone's going to care about taking a pic of a pub.

    Whilst out photographing the other week, I happened to notice a local bottle shop that was open. I photographed it, but I am wondering if I should publish the photo anywhere. I do not want to get anyone into trouble.

    Off licences and bottle shops - including brewery shops - are ok according to the Government's own website JFDI.
