With one exception, mentioned earlier, people have been very friendly. But then we also have a local gallery and an artists coop, not to mention the occasional wandering clown.
I had similar funny experience a while back. I was setting up to take a 4X5 picture of a church not far away and a stranger walked up and said he worked a an Extra in the movies and would I like him to stand in the picture? I told him thank you but I was trying NOT to get people in the picture. He looked confused and walked away.
