I thought it was very weird too but after a couple of months you become used to it. A very big impact for me after living some Years in Ireland where people are always offering their help and very open to chat at any time to anybody.

Since I don't know who mind or who don't, I photograph in the streets. If a person shows he doesn't want be photographed I don't shot. All they have to do is give me a sign and I will know. And I never hide myself. I shoot with 85mm lens and my subjects are just a few meters from me.
It is like talking to women. You will never know who will talk to you or who won't if you don't talk. Some will talk with you and will have a nice chat. Some others will pretend they can't see you or even go away as if you were a pervert just because you say "Hi" to them.
