And yet, if we want to, we can take any number of child pictures in public areas with the knowledge of photography we possess, without people ever noticing.Be cautious photographing other people’s children, even in public places. I’ve seen a similar altercation go against the photographer leading to broken gear, and the police took the parents’ side. It was ugly, but authorities will almost always look to child protection over public interest. The photographer isn’t going to get much sympathy.
But if one is in search of titillation of some sort, I can't see there being much in pictures of, I presume, fully clothed kids on the street.
On the other hand, I hear there's a place called "Internet", where I understand, after reading various news stories, there's an unlimited number of pictures of kids in different stages of humiliation (let's just call "it" that).
Then, being me, I was not aware that the phenomenon, as such, even existed before it was pushed into my face by various news media, it being so far outside my limited mindset.
But I'm quite sure that the media only have the public welfare in mind when publishing stories in that vein.
Or, do they?
