Photography is not a crime. Even if you are an old guy with a mullet in a dirty brown coat, old pants and dress shoes with no socks. You can take pictures of any public space and not violate a damn thing. And, no, you don’t have to ask permission of anyone to do so. Even if their kids are incidental to the picture. You only need a release if you are selling the image…
Turfing him out on social media as a possible predator because (and I quote) “If he wasn’t up to no good he would have asked permission” only proves that you are a) ignorant of the law b) have no clue about how street photogs don’t announce themselves because they are after candid shots c) are a paranoid f***.
