    WHERE in that post did it say that her parents were there? WHERE did it say anyone else scolded him? And WHERE is there even an indication that he "bothered" anyone else?


    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
    If your kid is jumping around, people are going to look at him. He has drawn their attention. And if they look at him jumping around, they just might take pictures of his antics. The woman overreacted.
    The OP was seated on a bench, while things happened around him, which he photographed. If he cannot do that, then Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank, Garry Winogrand, and so many others, were wrong to photograph what went on around them.
    Have you seen the video of HCB stalking his subjects, surreptitiously and quickly getting a photo before they knew what was going on? Geez, what a creep!
    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.

    Don't ever even consider becoming a news photographer.

    And if they don't comply, then what?

    Yeah, like it's A-OK to go yelling at people, calling them a pervert.

    It is clear that here on APUG we have 2 "streams": one who are on side of OP, and another who are on side of screaming women and kid showing finger.
    I bet first "stream" has Bresson and Winogrand as best photographer in their mind, while second has AA?

    Anybody consider HCB to be the best photographer - but is on a side of screaming women and kid showing finger?

    In this case, I'd have to side with the woman, rude or not. OP quite obviously has no concern or respect whatsoever for his "subjects". If that wasn't clear in the first post, he's certainly made it clear since.

    not really

    i have a lot of respect for hcb and winogrand and others,
    i am not a fan of grand landscapes ( not to mention aa's portraits seem rather stiff
    and not the kind of portraits i like looking at .. they don't reveal much of the person photographed )

    my problem is the OP comes off rather obnoxious and rude ... not the genre of photography.
    and suggesting that because a leica is being used it gives the user carte blanche to do as sHe pleases ...
