  • I might actually want one of those :-)

    ... were it not for the fact that I know that I can't sit still for those long exposures :-)

  • Replied in Hmm...
    I did expressly not do that - I asked the OP whether that was the way he saw it. But thanks for playing , Mr Expert Huntsman :-) Regards, Mike
  • Sorry, that was not the intention. My point is that there are actually definitions of "higher good" used e.g. in philosophy and ethics, and, to the best of my knowledge, they do not include a ...
  • Absolutely. I do not begrudge any students their time.

  • If I follow your argument, that is actually in support of my position, no? Regards, Mike
  • As an example, my absence from my home - which could make it a preferred target for  breaking and entering. As long as few people have access, real time, to the images, it is not really a worry. ...
  • Replied in Still no
    That's a bummer... Of course I am not. But the point stands, a single persons enjoyment does not qualify as a higher good - at least not since the disappearance of absolute monarchies ;-) And even ...
  • Well, some students apparently do have a bit much free time on their hands :-) :-) :-)

  • It doesn't. Your implied claim that people have nothing to hide does, though. Regards, Mike
  • Not in my jurisdiction, no. If you, in your jurisdiction, has let it come so far that that is possible, then I feel sorry for you... And guns are sometimes called Pacifiers or Peace Makers... Thank ...

    Which will cause immense problems for the cops in question, and be thrown directly out of court, around here. Your personal enjoyment fails - absolutely - to qualify as a higher good, sorry. Not ...
  • Keyword " easily identifiable" It's their choice not to look at the environment. If they choose not to exercise that ability, well... That was the reason for the "presuming the image was in the ...
  • Let's ask that the other way around. If peoples ethics and morals were really that different, would we be capable of having a functioning society? This is of course not a counter to the fact that ...
  • Replied in Hmm...
    The analogy is not that wrong, as both activities apparently share two attributes. One is only having one chance to achieve your goal. With the gun, the moment the prey notices you, your chances ...
  • You will, of course, also find a group of people who have a marked interested in that kind of photography being absolutely OK. Asking there will give you a skewed opinion. Which is perfectly OK, if ...
  • When you ask "What you have to hide ? [sic]" as an open question question you strongly imply that decent people have nothing to hide. Asking you for your personal information serves as a ...
  • Replied in Hmm...
    Why is your right to create great shots more important than other peoples right not to participate in the creation of those shots? So you act like a huntsman, and consider people in the street your ...
  • No, No main subject, nobody is easily identifiable, and - presuming the image was taken in the open, and not stealthily - everybody had a chance to refuse to participate. Regards, Mike
