I Agree

It's not "weird" to question why a someone is photographing complete strangers in a clandestine manner. I would have had a similar reaction. If I am at a touristy location I expect I will end up incidentally in someone's image. I also expect to have some privacy and not be the subject of a complete stranger's photography unless they ask and receive my permission.

I see very little street photography that is any good. Almost all of what I see, especially from amateurs, is either boring or creepy.
