Basking In The Sunshine

These two gentlemen had a lot to say about me taking the photo without their permission. I explained to them that they were in a public place and thus had no expectancy of privacy. I think what they really wanted was for me to fork over some money for taking the photo. Normally if people object to me taking photos in a well-mannered, civil way, I delete the photo. In this case these guys were anything but civil and I simply walked away.

The reason for me taking the photo was actually to highlight the high level of unemployment in the country. Gentlemen, the next time you don’t want your photo taken in a public space I would suggest that you do not swear at the photographer. Either this or you put a brown paper bag over your head.

Love The Hair

I saw this guy coming but I was facing the sun. I let him pass me and then said “hello”. This made him swing around to see who was talking to him and the rest is history.

Trade Unionist

One of the Civil Service departments were out on the streets protesting for a salary increase. This guy, one of the shop stewards, was keeping an eye on proceedings. I found myself in the middle of all this and starting taking a few photos. This shop steward approached me to tell me that I had no permission to take photos and I had to stop. It took some time to explain that seeing the protest was on public property they had no expectancy of privacy and I was well within my rights. We resolved the matter amicably and I walked away photos and all.
