No---that would almost be understandable. While taking photo's of Christmas decorations and street performers in Tempe, AZ, with the AZ POTN group, a little sawed-off hippie told us we didn't have permission to take pictures. When I replied that it was public property, he said, "Yeah, and I'm Public". I gave him credit for his witty retort and moved on without incident, but he was pissed. On the way home from purchasing a 50 1.4, I was testing the focus while stopped at a light when I heard someone scream, "HEY- WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING!" In the general direction of where I was testing focus, a homeless vagrant was sleeping on a bus stop bench. He jumped up and ran through three lanes of traffic straight to my car. I rolled up my window just in time for him to start beating on it and fortunately the light turned and I left without incident. Moral of the story: Some people are REAL paranoid about cameras. I would rather take photos of someone paying me to do so.
