    I'd resent someone taking pictures of me or my family in the worst moments of our lives, far more than at any other time. Context, indeed.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.

    Right. No way to tell, no way to judge, no basis to accuse.




    Different time and place, different rules.
    Whose rules?

    And do you think everybody liked being photographed back in those different times and different places?

    .....
    there was an elderly couple on the bench opposite and showing that they were still very much in love with each other. I took a picture of them. Then an old man came along wearing a trilby hat, looking distinguished. I took a shot of him.

    Then, what I can best describe as Vicki Pollard arrived, replete with the mandatory children. One of them began running towards the back of the bench and leaping high in the air over it, between the older people. "That would make a cool picture" I thought. He did it countless times, though each time I got ready to take the shot, he didn't jump. I made three attempts and gave up.

    Five minutes went by, then they got up to leave.


    seemed when i read it the people were all related to eachother

    the older ( disgusted ) couple and the lady with the kids ...



    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!
    yes, they were kind of creepy ...

    Maybe you read "distinguished" as "disgusted"?

    Let me ask you something. If the rule you followed brought you to this, of what use was the rule?

    I have been waved off a few times. When somebody does, I don't take their picture.

    Not because of some person's right to not be photographed or some BS like that. I do it because the person asked.

    The only time I would take the picture would be if there was a compelling reason like a crime, an accident or a disaster. The only other time I MIGHT take the picture is if I finally had a chance to take a once in a lifetime shot like "Afghan Girl" on the cover of National Geographic.

    But, like I said, that's a one in a million thing.

    Leica's may take good photos, but Leica owners often take TERRIBLE pictures haha (but they are oh so sharp and perfect grain and no CA) lol

    But seriously, I think context needs to be taken into account and I mean WHAT DOES THE OP DO WITH THE PHOTOS? If you actually publish books like some of the real street photographers that are well known, then you have some legitimacy to your claim, if you just keep them for yourself and not for example posting them in galleries or on a website that advertised street photography, then you kind of are being a creep.... Because you're taking snaps and keeping them to yourself.

    Chin up, keep enjoying your art, but keep in mind what you appear to others and your purpose for photographing and that should help you.
