I can't answer your question, but I just want to be sure that you know that in some countries publishing photos of people is forbidden (unless you have written consent)

That's a fair point - in some places/countries people have a right to privacy under law. In addition in some locations people may have a commercial persona or image rights (usually celebrities and the like) which entitles them to income (or a share thereof) derived from their image and a say in how their image is used.

In the UK the general rule is if you are in a public place you are fair game for photography. However, a little bit of "do unto others as you would have them do to you" doesn't go astray.
