It is impossible for someone to invade your privacy when you are in public because when in public there is no privacy. They are quite literally opposites!

Abide by the laws and just take as many photos as you like. Capture that perfect moment. The sun striking the face, the moon sparkling in that watery eye, or the silhouette of a sundress at dawn. When you find beauty in public, do the world a favor and capture it. And by all means, share it. Beauty and art is meant to be shared (on here, reddit, facebook, flickr, whatever).

Use common sense and respect people's right to privacy. Don't take pictures through windows, in bathrooms and/or dressing rooms, etc.

You made no point. You proved no point. Photographs taken by different people of different people in different points of time in different situations...

Landscapes not a problem. Any ideas?

What about when the weather turns bad?

Thoughts are greatly appreciated.

^^^Excellent pictures, and exactly what I think. Most people don't mind, and there is no way to get the perfect expression after asking for permission to take a pix.
Public places are public, and no one should expect any privacy there. Everyone is seen by everyone. There are city and business cameras in use. And yes - people are taking pictures. Absolutely nothing wrong with it.

There are places and events where taking pictures is restricted. But this request is always posted or announced.

It depends on the occasion. I will approach people for permission if I want specific shots with them being primary subject. On other occasions (public events like a sporting event/protest/float (some kind of exhibition) participants), I don't see a need to:


On some occasions, the person may be aware of you being a photographer (at an event) and be okay with it, as in this case:


Then there are occasions where a person or more may simply be a part of the scene (the scene being the subject rather than the person), and in that case, I would not worry too much and simply shoot:
