I very rarely do street photography. For that matter I seldom photograph people.
However, when we are out in "public" we can rest assured our images are captured over and over. From security cams, to cell phones, the street photographer is the rarest of our captured likenesses. For reference, the Boston Marathon Bombers were captured over and over on a multitude of imaging devices.
When I see a street photographer, I simply continue on with what I was doing, or get out of their frame, if I am blocking their view of what they wanted to photograph.
Now the people who interrupt my dining experience with video and flash photography, I usually assist by giving them a big smile and wave. Even a "Hi Mom!", for the videos... Then they can forever wonder who I am. (Dear, he must be on your side of the family... I don't know him.)
