Maybe you wont be hassled, but remember that France has a law "Droit a l'image", that basically makes it impossible for you to use photos of French people without their permission. However, I assume that if you take pics of people in France, and not publish them in France, you're probably gonna be just fine.
Some weeks ago I stopped a loveley looking lady at the street asking if i could take some shots of her right there on the street, she said "yes, if you want, but you can't use them", turned out she was a lawyer, and explained about this law for me. We decided to meet up one day soon and then she'll explain the details to me and what I have to do in order to get peoples legal permission (basically a contract) to use their faces on photos for exhibitions etc.
