    Oh wow and here I thought Vivian Maier was a street photographer. Turns out she was just a creep.

    Interesting stuff.

    Sadly, over the course of this thread I've become a poorly dressed creep, who stares for extended periods and points his camera continuously at children.

    I'm now someone who isn't a serious photographer because I don't wear a shirt and trousers. I pester people to the point of exasperation and I have no integrity as I don't write books.

    NO I WON'T BE PHOTOGRAPHING MINORS AGAIN (I think I may have mentioned that before?) IT WAS A ONE-OFF AND SOMETHING I WON'T BE REPEATING ANY TIME SOON.

    On the other hand, the 'business card' suggestion is a good one and something I will be doing tonight online. I also thank many for their kind words and encouragement (you know who you are. )

    As for the rest of you . . . Merry Christmas.

    The OP was sitting on a bench, in plain view, not even moving around. I don't think that in any way constitutes stalking. Take out the word "stalk" and I agree with the statement.
    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.

    Lol. Oh, boy. Here we go again.

    I think if the police called any parent up and said we found pictures of your children amongst thousands of undeveloped negatives stretching back decades in an abandoned storage locker which used to belong to a dead recluse you would be a smidge creeped out.

    jus' sayin'

    I am not saying the OP is a "creep." Just to be clear.

    No amount of etiquet or social conditioning will remove this basic drive that is in all of us.

    Being attracted to a passing female/male is nothing more than being the male/female of our species.
    I guess that explains why I keep reading your name as "Minge Rider".

    Brian: I would have told the owner (not the dog) to sit down, stay, don't speak and then to reach into his wallet and give you $10 bucks. THEN if he was good, you'd photograph the dog but that's just his sitting fee. The dog is extra plus prints, of course.

    I recommend the same technique if parents ask me to photograph their kids. I tell them to sit, stay, and fetch. The dual messages always throw parents a huge curve.

    It's not of course as there's no such thing as a business licence for a street photographer here. And what if it is not being done as part of a business?

    Fixed your post for you.

    Sorry man. I'm not going to change my honest answers just to make you happy. And I have no intention of thread jacking and relitigating that topic.

    It all boils down to this...are we within our legal rights to shoot as we please. After that, it rests on personal etiquette, that which varies around the world.
