Photography is not a crime!

Posted on Mon, Sep 7, 2009 at 2:52 PM

This is to all of the people downtown that give me dirty looks or don't return my smiles or just glare at me because I'm out taking photos with my SLR. Why do you have to be such unfriendly jerks? Why are people only rude when I have my camera out? A camera with a big lens is nothing to be afraid of.

I'm a photographer! It's what I do. I like making pretty pictures. It's fun, it's a catharsis. I'm not a pervert, or terrorist, or peeping tom, or anything else other than a dude walking around the city taking photos of interesting places, people and things. I don't get it. When did photography become such a thing to be hated by the general population? Or is downtown just full of stuck up jerks?
