Five minutes went by, then they got up to leave. Next thing I know, she's shouting "you're a sick pervert for photographing my kids" and that she was going to call the police. I remained calm and assured her that I wasn't a pervert, that 'perverts' don't use 1500 quid Leica kit and that I would stay here and wait for the police to arrive. She repeated that I was a pervert and that she was going to call the police. She left with her ill-fated children, one of them giving me the finger.
She cannot control her own life. She cannot control her children. Therefore she took her anger out on you.
I do not know your laws, but you probably could have called the police and had her cited for harassment.

I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
