Situations like this (photographing in "sensitive" areas) cause emotions to run high. Individuals always have their own ideas about what is "morally right" and often get quite combative/assertive about expressing them or imposing them on others. Fortunately societies are able to create laws which govern the behaviour of individuals where the rights of others are concerned.
My personal philosophy would be to respect the law first, and try not to let whatever "moral values" I might be burdened with affect other peoples rights.
Where law or title or right of way is not clear, then respect and negotiation are the only productive way to proceed and the two combined usually work wonders.
My opportunity for imposing my moral values on others comes often enough and takes place at the ballot box.
