I am such a shy person that I dont even think I have taken a photo of anybody outside my family. I always see people walking or doing something very interesting and want to take a shot but I just cant. I dont know if I should ask or just take it. If I ask...what do I say? What if they say no? I know that a few around here have talked about people watching. What are the restrictions on this? Can you grab your telephoto lens and get some shots? Do you have to personally ask them if its alright? I am pretty sure that legally you can take the photo without any problems. Public domain or something like that. At least thats the case around here. I am thinking more about ethics and what is right in that regard.
