Default Bloomsburg Fair Photo Album

I took these pictures over a period of three days.

http://share.shutterfly.com/action/welcome?sid=8AYs2Tho4bOWQP

One evening at the fair, an irate lady chased after me with a policeman. Evidently someone told her that I photographed her daughter throwing darts at balloons. She was hysterical. I had my tiny camera in my pocket. She accused me of trying to hide it! I took the camera out, found the photo which showed the back of her daughter and the board of balloons. I showed it to her and the cop. I deleted it in front of her. She was silent but still redfaced. The cop said "are ya happy now!?" I walked away with my friend and she looked dumfounded. Looking back, I think she wanted to rip the film out and stomp on it. She seemed dissatisfied........... enjoy the 111 pictures!

Ken, that's exactly why I have to be so careful on my own photo tours. My West Pittston photo tour erupted into controversy when a borough resident joined the forum to attack me because he/she didn't appreciate me not asking for permission first before photographing parts of the community. Apparently that uneducated person never heard of a little thing called "Google Earth: Street View" in which you can virtually zoom down any street of many cities and see cars, people, etc.

Talking Public Domain

I have discovered when in public and taking photographs it is best, if possible, to not give information. I have been in many "interesting" situations and never truly had a serious problem. Did I mention that the Boston subway system shut down near Fenway Park because I was taking pics while riding? Now that's a story!

Yes, you get those paranoid people who think the worst, but they go away. I try to be discreet when alone. Of course, you should be courteous and exercise care even when in groups. Groups tend to intimidate.

There is no need to ask for approval to walk the streets and take pictures. (sigh)

btw... the Bloomsburg Fair is A TREASURE TROVE for great photos!
The Fair photo album of 111 was taken just after moving back here from New England. It was extensive! I believe I took 900 pics and edited down to just over 100. I plan on doing it again, only pushing the envelope and getting the most unusual situations. Mebbe asking people to pose.....

I know the feeling...when I was doing PI work, surveillance, obviously my job was to use a camera, and many people didn't like it one bit. People would have the nerve to say something to me when they weren't even the ones I was filming!!
