Street photos with a lens hood

I will be shooting street stuff with an 18-55mm on a Fuji xe1

I will be going into an area to shoot where I need to be very subtle

Don't even hold the camera to my eye but at my chest and look away from the subjet

I am thinking the lens hood will draw too much attention to my lens

Before for this area where I am shooting,  I used a Panasonic gx1 with a 20 f1.7 and seemed to work well and very inconspicuous

Wanted to see what other street shooters thought about not using a lens hood
