I have a habit of lurking around forums but not posting all that much. So today my wife is off and she starts looking over my shoulder a bit. So today I look at a Cafe member's pictures. They are some nice pics of people at play on a public beach. My wife looks at me and says, "Isn't it illegal to be taking pictures of that?" I say what do you mean? "Isn't that an invasion of privacy?" Your kidding....from my wife with a background in art.....Well no, dear, its like this. What's the difference between looking at people in a public place and taking pictures of them. If you want privacy stay at home where there is an expectation of privacy. This is the second time this summer someone's questioned me about privacy rights in a public place. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't part the definition of public meaning not private or expectation thereof? I've run into this problem before using the 70-200VR in a park Trees no beach) of all places. Anyone else run into this problem?
