    It's legal. Just don't let law enforcement or the general public catch you doing it...

    Yes or No?
    No. I don't like Motorhead...

    But seriously, always wear a shirt and a cheesy grin.

    All I'll say is, when confronted by these characters in future, just ask yourself; "what would Gok do?"

    To conclude, you go girl.

    If I followed Gok's lead I would have said, "you've got great bangers darling, so show 'em off."

    Then sit and wait for the men in white coats.

    The real perverts are behind government cameras... watching us for our own good and their own pleasure...

    As for the woman, i had a photo shoot at a park, and while waiting i sat on a concrete table/bench. This homeless guy leaves his cart next to the table next to me... he goes to the restroom and comes back and says... 'did you take a picture of my stuff... you probably did, huh, don't be photographing my stuff without my permission'... i don't do street photography... but i told this guy i could photograph what i wanted since it was on public property. He shut up and that was the end of it until he offered me some fries and burgers.

    You are not actually far from the truth. About 15 years ago I used to do building maintenance in a series of buildings in a very well known city (not in Australia). During that time I got to know a bunch of the security team who were assigned to these buildings. They used to have have a tape that they would dub certain footage too, which they showed me once. The footage was of, lets say, private liaisons in secluded areas.

    Yes, there are certain areas in most cities where you cannot do ANYTHING without someone watching...

    You're seriously asking what a busybody mother would think of a dude wearing a Motorhead shirt? :P

    The law in the US is: if you are in public space, and you can see it from there, you have an explicit right to photograph it for any non-commercial reason. Full stop.

    Darn near every cell phone made in the last ten years has a camera built into it. Nobody thinks anything of a person with a phone. Have a real camera, and all of a sudden people in public places are worried about their privacy.

    The Boston marathon bombing should have laid to rest any idea of not being photographed while out and about. Between private images and security videos, the police were able to rapidly figure out what happened.
