While most everyone has been nice to me since i've started photography, I've ran into some issues recently of people being suspicious/angry/scared of me and my camera. I've had people get very angry at me because my lens was pointed somewhere in their vicinity...not even at them, but somewhere around them. Just this month, Ive had a guy run out of his house and curse me because my camera was pointing at the powerline above his house. A lady thought I was taking a sleazy pic of her from..... im not kidding.....a cross a bridge (see my flickr for the bridge) with a 14mm+wide angle converter. On thursday, I had cops roll up on me because I looked "suspicious" It wasnt some casual "excuse me sir, what are you doing?" kind of deal. It was tires screeching, hands on gun holster, running towards me, "dont move!!!" kind of a deal. I know the law, and I keep it cool with everyone I've managed to bother. I usually stick around and try to talk to them or atleast take in their verbal assult. But a part of me want to just flip them off and walk away......because I didnt do anything wrong. I want to know, whats the best way to deal with these kind of things?
