How true is this these days?
Paul Vollans, from Alvechurch, W Midlands writes to The Times:
… spontaneous photographs of children today will not be available in future — who would dare take them with child protection and privacy laws breathing so heavily down our necks?
Not just Children. Adults. A Child can’t force a fist through your lens, realistically. But an adult can, if they take a dislike to you being photographed in the street.
This picture was taken on a Tripod. If one person had taken a dislike, i dread to think what would have happened to the camera.
I’m interested in what you think of this – get in contact with me by leaving a comment below. Its for a documentary i’m working on, about photographers and public places. More information can be found by clicking the link above, or clicking here.
