Have you ever taken a picture of someone in public without their permission?

Like when they're drinking a coffee or waiting at a bus stop?

No but someone did that to me few years ago. Felt really weird I had never seen that. It was a guy, I did find him attractive, but, it felt still odd to me and like, um what are you doing?

[@562099,Coralmist] the same happened to me years ago also. I was on a long bike ride on a hot day, and my phone died. I had stopped on the sidewalk in the shade of a building to change the battery on the phone. Looking up, I noticed a station wagon stopped in the middle of the street. The driver, a white-haired gent with an equally white goatee (he looked a lot like Col. Sanders!) had his hand extended through the open window holding a smartphone, pointed directly at me. I can only assume he was photographing me. Upon noticing him, I made a shrugging gesture, and he immediately retracted his hand, the window went up, and he sped away. Weeks later, riding on the same street, I saw him puttering around in his yard. I called out to him to ask how the photos came out, but he hastened back into his house and shut the door!

Technically it's legal in a public setting ... but you might be challenged ...

No. That’s WAY past the creepy line.

Never. It would tick me off if someone did it to me.

But oh my, was I ever tempted at the bike trailhead parking lot. 🤤🔥 ;-)

Of course not. It simply wouldn't occur to me to be so intrusive.

I had a friend who used to go to music festivals for the purpose of photographing "interesting-looking people"
I dont want people in my pictures anyway - I rather take pix of buildings or nature. Taking a picture of some jerk on the street is a waste of my time.
