“Fortunately, we live on the basis of a vital illusion, on the basis of absence, an unreality, a non-immediacy of things. Fortunately, nothing is instantaneous, simultaneous or contemporary. Fortunately, nothing is present or identical to itself. Fortunately, reality does not take place.” Jean Baudrillard, The Perfect Crime, 1996.

Oddly enough, a day after the photo protest in London I spotted these two policemen searching the platform as my train left the station and just managed to grab a shot through the glass.
