Awhile back I did some dance photos in the city next to my town. We went to the walking mall, and ventured into the alleys. There was a really cool building on one alley that was purple painted brick. I got yelled at for "tresspassing" even though we never touched the building and there's a sidewalk. I don't even think it was the owner that yelled at me, but a tenant. As far as the law goes, I wasn't breaking any, was I? There were no windows that you could see into or anything like that. The building is on a public street, next to a sidewalk. I'm in VA, if that helps. I ask bc I have a shoot coming up and would love to use that background again, but want to make sure I'm within the law.
