Where's the "evidence"? I don't see any sign of a delivery vehicle - other than the bus!

This is how the bus was parked, due to the van sitting in the centre of the area which is clearly marked "bus zone". But then, adhering to the road rules will always be considered optional to at least 50% of motorists, and not a mandatory requirement, at least until they accumulate well over 4 grand in fines.

I didn't photograph the van due to the potential risks associated with it, and it not being my problem.

Pompous bus enthusiasts. Actually, nerds in general!

If 95 is "too soon", then how long do you expect people to live for?

Inn a public setting you have no expectation of privacy and consent is not required to take video, film or pictures of you.

Actually, this really gives me "the S&#T's". :evil:

I do a lot of photography, including a whole lot of personal bus photography and let me tell you, It's so damn hard trying to do my thing without some pantsy giving me the evil eye because they think I'm taking a photo of them.

As Swift said, when you're in public, any need for consent and any expectation of privacy goes right out the window.

As for photos with a family or the like, what do you expect them to do at the time? Find some abandoned laneway that nobody goes to and take the shot then get a later charge for trespass for finding the only empty area they could do the shot in even though they couldn't do it anywhere else because one individual is bothered by it???

Look, if you see a family shot being taken and you want to make sure no trace of yourself ends up in it, walk behind the photographer. Simple. If you see a family shot about to be formed, move outta the way. If it's in the middle of a CBD, then ain't a damn thing you can do about it other than to just mind your business and let them capture a potentially special moment of their lives in a photograph (since for example maybe some members of that family may end up passing away a few weeks or years down the track), or even yet, just go down a different path if there is one. Once again, you hit the streets, you're in public where it's bound to happen sometime.

See, this is why I only take shots during dawn, dusk and night, because the dead middle of the day is filled by some sensitive dirtbags that get threatened at the mere sight of a photographer and I for one am sick of it. I can still recall getting some dead looks from some drivers for taking photos of buses. (Look you two, I'm photographing the bus. I don't know you, I don't know your backstories, I'm photographing the bus. Why? Because I like buses, it's a hobby of mine, and I really like this bus here.)

I'm very sorry about nearly getting mad, but I've had so many people barge into my business without minding their own just for me photographing my friends, my family, the buses, a public area, etc., all of which has had absolutely nothing to do with those people and I've just about lost my patience with them. :x :evil:
