You mentioned the statute. Can you provide the specific verbage?

Truly, I would be interested in reading it, but State statutes can be quite long, and I can't see digging through it to try to find the part that you think may pertain...

What? You quoted me when I took an excerpt from it. Here it is in full:

http://www.leg.state.f​l.us …84/Sections/078​4.048.html (external link)

"“Harass” means to engage in a course of conduct directed at a specific person that causes substantial emotional distress in such person and serves no legitimate purpose.
"


I would love to know what type of straw man argument one would use in order to link every day street photography with a state and federal level definition of harassment. I'm sure there are a few firms who would love to talk to whoever that man it.

I dunno... I love good street photography, but if one of these guys bent over to take a picture of my wife's legs, I would be inclined to mount the camera permanently to his face with my boot. Legal , heck no..but completely satisfying.

tough-guy talk from a photographer who enjoys taking photos of young boys' butts at the line of scrimmage. :p

Hmmm...I see assault charges being filed by the DA. Hope you like the boys in jail! (maybe some temperance is a better solution to your hypothetical situation)

Just so show you what some of you are seeing

From local news with headline - Man question by police for taking photos of girls in Waikiki - police considering harassment charges:


The actual photo taken

The intended Shot

Now i was never questioned or anything BUT you could see how thing could get twisted out of shape - would be very easy to make my photos look sleezy and make it look like im up to no good when infact some one walked into my shot

If you wernt there your opinion dose not count

Why were you taking pictures of wet rocks with tilted horizons?

Saw that creepy old guy out there with his video camera again. My guess is that he can get the shots more easily and get them from a greater distance now. Also,he probably gets more in each shot now. He is usually staying somewhat out of view by standing by a vacant store. He was always right by Corner Mall until that report came out. Looks like he is just being plain sneaky and straight-up sleazy now. There's also the heavy-set guy standing at the end of Bromfield taking sneak shots of females as they walk by; he is a part of that group mentioned in the news report. These guys are not street photographers and shouldn't be grouped in with street photographers.

Well I read the entire article also a follow up by one of the photographers. I reviewed some of the photographs etc. The snaps they shot are not offensive nor could you identify the subjects. As to their methods I can not say one way or the other if they where offensive. If this is your venue you can expect to get the wrong person in the wrong mood once in a while in could be harmful to your health and equipment. Just understand because it may be legal doesn't make it right. People are entitled to privacy no matter where they are. No human is public property no matter how you attempt to justify your actions.

That's a nice sentiment and it would be a better world if it was true, but the fact is that once you leave your front door, you are photographed hundreds of times every day. Anyone who believes that there is even a little privacy in a public place is deluding themselves.

I have a friend whom is friendly with John Mac. John boasted of the photos and video he takes of females and even showed him some samples. He may be in his right,but he should stop claiming to be a street photographer as his defense. Street photography is a great way capturing the vibe of a place or depict a certain emotion by catching someone candidly. Boob and ass shots don't qualify as street photography. John and his group should stop pretending to be street photographers,because they are doing damage to street photography's reputation.

You mean, if some guy is out on the street acting like a real boob, or is making an ass of himself, and you take photos of him, that is not street photography?! ;)

I can't believe the rhetoric from these news people. This is a very slippery slope.

For anyone interested in getting insight into what these guys may be up to in Boston, Google 'candid street"; that should give you an idea. When you have the same group of men out and about everyday with cameras snapping shots and videos of females and young men, I don't think it's unfair to believe they're up to no good. My biggest concern is that they are exploiting minors if say they are posting their photos to candid sites.

Tasteful the original people in the article aren't, but the first post being someone threatening illegal assault is not unexpected.

Always ask first. If you want the person to concentrate on something else it will take a few minutes of interaction to feel comfortable.
