    I have an attachment that lets me take a photo at 90 degrees to the way the camera is pointing. It uses a mirror. However, I usually don't have it with me and just shoot by estimating the focus and shoot from the hip so its not noticeable that I am taking photos. Easy with a camera like an M2, and if using a SLR, resort to mirror lockup to quite the shutter noise.

    Zone focus ahead of time, pre-set your exposure settings, and frame fast... then hope. But never forget what you said, "People deserve their privacy..."

    I got a few candid shots several years ago by using a camera with a waist level finder and pretending to be checking and adjusting the controls. If the camera is hanging by its strap at your waist, it looks a lot less like you're getting ready to take a picture. People nowadays associate picture taking with bringing the camera to eye level or holding it in front of the face.

    Put a TLR in a giant Teletubby plush toy, then hang it around your neck. You'll look weird as all get-out but nobody will bother you as they'll think you're certifiably nuts. That, or scale focus and frame loose so you have plenty of room to crop if the in-camera composition is wonky.

    Using any of my Nikon F/F2/F3 bodies, I just remove the finder (or use a WLF) and hold the camera at waist level. Pre-focus the lens and frame the shot looking down at the focusing screen. You can even face away from your subject with the lens pointed in their direction. I just try to act like I'm fiddling with the camera.

    My advice on this subject is the same as I always give to this sort of question, use as small a 35mm camera as possible with the smoothest edge profile, something like an Olympus XA, so it won't be too painful when one of your subjects who takes offence at being photographed eventually stick it where the sun don't shine
