The British Embassy in Hill Street ... interesting in that the security guards came out again and asked me to desist from taking photos ... oh so precious!

Hah! With Google Maps I can see in and over the building, not sure how them stopping you taking your photo makes a difference ;-)

You're on a public footpath and can photograph what ever you like. But you're not the first person to have problems:

Google Street View also provides a nice close up of the High Commission court yard.
