I was taking some Street photographs today in a rather popular tourist attraction . I took a shot of a Caucasian man who was fitting the frame of the shot nicely and thanked him. However, he was a little unhappy with the fact that I shot him without his consent and he proceeded to lecturer me about ethics of asking someone for permission before shooting.
I apologised and thanked him again for the shot unfortunately he was still unhappy and decided to take a sarcastic shot of me while I was at work but I decided to shrug it off as I did not want to be petty about the situation
Was I truly out of line for taking his photo that required him to react in such a way? Should I have done something instead of just letting him do as he pleased?
