If you saw someone with hundreds of photos of women's feet, you might think they had some fetish, but you might discover they are a podiatrist and photos are patient's feet and change your attribution. Again, intent and context matter.

In the end, I think we should avoid drawing conclusions about the photographer from photos that have no context and present no obvious moral dilemmas in the scene.

We should also consider what the OP is really asking. Perhaps "voyeurism" was a poor choice of words and really just wanted to know if it was socially acceptable. As you said, context is everything. Laying in wait is vastly different than just snapping a photo while hiking.

Good point. I know "street photography" is a genre that some people have honest intentions about, but really afraid about being creepy in public. I think the OP is probably (hopefully) concerned about that.
