    Don't wear a long mac.

    Wear a sandwich board with message "I am not a pervert" on the front and "or worse" on the back.

    He knows a sign maker I guess, looking at his car.:)

    Use an I phone on a stick. No one will give you a second glance.

    Probably wise to fit fore and aft cameras if walking down the street dressed like that.

    But not to be used for up-skirting. Then you would be a perv.

    Blimey. That's a bit much. I take it they've won acclaim/awards/etc.?

    Interesting... Funnily enough the keyboard on my phone suggested 'intruding' as I squiggled my finger over the screen!

    Definitely not something I'd read/consume but I can understand the fascination with mysterious strangers and their communications. I once had (stored only in my memory) a range of the "most Edinburgh" things I'd heard passers-by saying.

    Use a retro looking digital camera hung round your neck on an old fashioned strap. Use a 35 or 28mm (35mm equivalent)lens. Control the camera while fiddling with your phone. Really concentrate on the phone for your view on the world via the camera app.

    What is the point of having a camera if you are going to piddle around with a phone?
