    you can't take pictures of people these days without them thinking you're up to something underhand :(
    one instance:
    I need to get some pics of the people i work with. I've tried getting them to sit for pics and half of them refuse point blank. So i thought if i got a series of 'candids' to show them in an 'everyday working situation' it might be quite good but no... they are get all arsey about it. Feck 'em.
    another instance:
    street pics... i've seen loads of pics recently of outside, in town centres in the 70s or something showing people just going around their daily business..and giving a sense of time and history... can i do it? no. 'Why are you taking pictures of us?' 'Delete them right now!'
    feckin hell does no-one have any trust any more? :(

    bugger it. I'll go back to taking pics of trees and puddles and macros of salt and stuff :(
