... Approaching me the she did you would have set me into a frenzy and I probably would have called the police my self and had her for harrassment.
We as photographers have to draw the line somewhere and in this case the way it went down she clearly stepped over it. I love street photography and candids are one aspect of that. I love to shoot at the beach and sometimes there are kids playing in the sand and surf.
If we let these frantic moms get away with this type of harassment we stand to loose a lot of photo ops. I've never run into this type of situation but if I do I hope I have the presence of mind to calmly dial 911 and report that I am being attacked by a out of control mom. Someone other than me needs to educate her that taking pictures in a public park is still legal and not every male is trying to assault her kids. I would hope I have the stones to pressed charges.
