basically i was walking along and shaped a shot where they were in the frame but about 30 meters away from me, nothing was said until i was 100 meters or so away and i heard some one shout "oi mate" i ignored thinking it wasn't for me and it happened twice more so turned round, they called me over, wasn't sure what was up tho had a sneaky suspicion. in Notiingham the coppers know the law and know you can take street shots, they didn't in mansfield tho. asked me what i was doing, so explained, politely. they bluntly said i can't take street photography of any one i like, i need their consent. so explained that wasn't the case, i don't hassle people, i take a pic and move on. they said i can't just do that and to delta the images! at that point the bloke wanders off to talk on his radio, and I'm left with the female officer. explain that I've had similar incidents and in a second you'll see I'm not breaking the law, then i started filming..... excuse me stuttering haha, was caught a bit off guard and out of breath from walking about all morning [video=youtube;EQT-SZ3U4h8]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQT-SZ3U4h8&feature=player_embedded[/video] so in short I'm apparently not allowed to continue taking photos in the street and if i do ill be arrested for harassment!! "Harassment is defined as a 'course of conduct' (so it has to happen at least twice) that causes another person 'alarm or distress', but we have to say that the bullying and aggressive antics of the paparazzi would suggest that prosecutions are few and far between." later i spotted them so decided to go for another chat swell as get both their numbers, they said again, i should get peoples permition, i explained if i had to get everyones details that was in an image id be there all day, the bloke agreed with me but still insisted i was wrong to do so, the women said I'm basically harassing every single person, thoughts?
