Re: Ethics of Street Photography?

Decency should prevail

One person in a particular superzoom forum was able to take photos through the open window of a house of someone partially clothed. The justification seemed to be 'because I can'. Some people even responded that if the person in the house wanted privacy they should close their drapes or stay away from the windows. Fortunately most others rejected that whole idea as nonsense. One should not have to hide from their own windows to be free of having photos taken of them.

And some regular street shots are just creepy. Or exploitative.
