Times have changed and in the department of people-watching, it's purely depressing. (no offense to the writer of the referenced post).
    In closing, I wish people would stop going out in public wearing rags I wouldn't sleep in, much less leave the house.
    I must agree with this statement. I find out that in some parts of the world I just don't enjoy street photography as much as I enjoy in another parts because (between other stuff) of people clothings and style.

    Maybe others have found this, but when you click on the first link of post #76, I get a warning from google saying the content of the blog may only be suitable for adults and an option to continue or not.

    Surely this can't be because it contains a picture with a (barely visible) child in it ??

    perhaps if you were in her family's shoes ...
    lets see ...

    sitting across from you is a guy with a camera to his face for 5+ minutes
    who bothered your parents first ( who scolded him ) ..

    and for 5 mins ( which seems like an eternity ) he is staring at you and your kids
    was taking photos ...

    i am sure it looked like he wouldn't leave them alone.
    from the lady and her parents' point of view he hounded them

    Just a comment.............I do not like my picture being taken. So when someone points a camera my way I just wag my finger and mouth the word "no". Works just fine. No drama needed.

    Can all you people calling yourselves "street photographers" please stop whining every time someone on the street is annoyed by your annoying behaviour? If you seriously find it artistic to invade the privacy of complete strangers, at least have the decency to recognize they might get pissed off, particularly if someone tries repeatedly to get a picture of a child. It astounds me OP was so shocked by the mother's reaction. She doesn't know he isn't a pervert and is actually a street photographer (whatever that is anyway). And that doesn't even matter. Some people just plain don't like having their picture taken for no reason. I'm one of them.

    No, a Leica doesn't make you any more legitimate. No, the legalities of the matter don't make your behaviour less creepy. And no, not everyone who objects to the way you make your "art" is mentally ill. OP is lucky all he got was a verbal reaction.

    Even that would make a good picture.

    Sorry couldn't help myself there.

    What I was getting at was that you are a journo' but you completely mis-quoted my original post.

    Not something I would usually associate with journalism.

    I hope you are joking.

    I must be getting old, but I am still of the school that believes good manners and consideration trump our "right" to stick a camera where it is not welcome.

    Some of the best photo's have consisted of people displeased with the camera.

    Imagine if Weegee had been respectful of the desires of others to not be photographed.
