Assuming that you're not serving up static files directly via e.g. nginx, then 
I think a before filter should be able to catch requests that would otherwise 
have been served straight out of the public dir... maybe something vaguely 

before sub {
    if (request->path =~ m{^/images}) {

I'm not sure that params will have been parsed, though, if it's being treated 
as a static route.

I think the way you've implemented it is quite probably a better option.
