As has been mentioned elsewhere, his sign was not 'polite'.

If he had written: 'Please do not photograph the booth', then it would have been a polite request, but 'NO PHOTOGRAPHS' is, in my opinion, extremely brusque.

Given that someone had decided to make such a sign, despite it being unenforceable, seems to suggest that they weren't likely to be very welcoming or accommodating.

That, in itself, would put the OP in a difficult position if his primary hobby, or job, is photography.

In hindsight, it may have been sensible to ask first, but would the reaction have been any more tolerant? I think a gentle, 'Sorry, I didn't mean to intrude or offend, but I just took a general shot of the bustling market scene. It's my hobby', would have worked best.
