I'm not embarrased about taking photographs in public, but I am aware that I could be arrested, or be aproached by a security 'jobsworth'.

The UK seems pretty keen that we dont photograph too much, I've taken photographs in Russia during the 'Cold War' far easier than the current situation in the UK.

If you're taking photographs in public, be bold about it and nobody will take a blind bit of notice. If somebody thinks you are taking photographs covertly (even if you're not) then this can lead to problems.

There's digital, and there's real photography

I was under the impression It is an "Asian problem".But It seems that It is all over there. Recently I have been to Mumbai(Previously it was known as Bombay).I tag the camera on my shoulder,My younger sister shouted at me " I won't come with you"(So much of metro mentality) We went to Crowfrad Market to buy some food stuff.So I was just taking the picture of vegetable using "camera phone" while my sister busy with bargaining. Vendor noticing me taking photograph, he quitely pushed some "bright red tomato" among green produce neatly displayed for me.I looked at him to say Thank, He just winked at me and gave a huge smile.
Frankly speaking, I am very scared to take snaps at my hometown.B'coz they feel it is a weird and give me a strange look . But if I go out , I just don't mind carrying my camera bag with me. But the problem is most of the places are prohibated for photography.What a shame?? Even "Shopping mall" do not allow it's customer.
I want to try my hand in "portrait".But I get the feeling they are getting me wrong.So I am down to take picture of inanimate objects or watch other people work and wish if I could do something like that
