    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.
    Well at least get a website and post some of the images so when people look at the site from your business card and see other "street" style images, then they will view you as legit.

    Remember legitimacy is really just perception anyway.

    And to the fellow who said most commenters weren't street photographers (whatever that even means) I've shot photos of streets all my life... Hehe...

    Yes, but all this is open for discussion and even constant revision and values of society change. One movie star was trying to make it illegal to shoot kids.

    There are some photogs that don't approve of street photogrpahy at all. If they had their way we would all be shooting landscapes, horses or rocks.

    What a brilliant idea.

    I know what, I could call it 'The Street Photography Blog' and put a link to it in my signature below (unless you're using tapatalk in which case it's www.streetphotographyblog.co.uk)

    Don't worry, it happens to the best of us.

    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.
