So near, yet so far away

This photo by Jotman shows Kady O’Malley of Inside the Queensway, a popular Canadian politics blog, at the G20 summit in London on 2 April. Kady -- shown standing on the patio area above the River Thames -- is looking through the barrier that divides the side of the ExCeL Convention Center accessible to journalists (the "Media Center") from the zone where world leaders have gathered. Cut off from the outside world by a massive security operation, bloggers and other media people were effectively prisoners of the ExCeL for the day. Fortunately, they provided us with food and beverages.
