    Just for fun..and the total truth!!!!
    A fellow human brandishing a large chrome gun told me to stop photographing kids in a near northside Chicago city park for a story I was photographing on crack neighborhoods. Did not argue with the guy, or say a thing, left with the reporter happy he put the gun back in his gym bag and let us get in our Honda and leave. He did not like us "educated white guys exploiting his hood". I to this day understand his perspective as not appreciating our high brow intelectual curiosity in his reality.

    Steve.
    Agree Steve... so say you are a family of "small people" who have not "went public" with a reality show.

    An APUGer takes photos of you (more than one) and you object -- it's a simple country strawberry festival. Apuger post here that "HE WAS ASKED TO DELETE A PHOTO OR STOP PHOTOGRAPHING"

    At what point is which party being the "jerk".

    Just a friendly debate folks. Thanks... just stirring the conversation.

    Steve.
    Precisely.

    These days there are few lines between a "blogging" photographer and a credentialed photographer shooting on assignment.
    It's just the way it is.

    Even "social media" sites have become potent places for both positive and negative change through exposure.

    Well at least we know who the thug was...
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I should go back as it is no longer there...Cabrini–Green.
    There was a hospital in the thick of it where "crack babies" were nursed, where I photographed a Priest and his staff that ran the place. This was about 1992.


    I don't consider that guy a thug... perhaps he was the John Wayne of the neighborhood. I wish him peace, I wish common folks peace at the farmers market, or the strawberry festival.
    What it comes down to is "what kind of skin bag" you were born into, and where it has taken you.

    I'm not surprised at your anecdote.

    Yes, you absolutely did.
    The question of what is reasonable and prudent in this type situation is always something not to be ignored

    btw: would love to see the series if you have them somewhere.
