    People ask me to take photos of themselves posing in front of popular tourist attractions for free.

    Actually... nothing... when I am on holiday, I am there to enjoy myself and there really is quite a few that that can set me off regarding photography... on the other hand, other stuff might trigger me off... but it will be OT.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.
    My lousy shots

    No taking of photographs even though I am not shooting him/her. To avoid confrontation, I would normally wait for him/her to leave. If that is not happening, then choose an alternative angle. Afterall, I am not there to pick a fight but for holiday.

    Don't ever join tour group alone. If can, find someone else. Cause you can become photographer for some old couples. Ha ha!
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!

    Most annoying thing to say

    Anything that start with 'You Should'

    1) You should use another brand of camera
    2) You should use full frame DSLR
    3) You should use more expensive lens

    Got once, I was standing at the road side and the Luxor hotel, is behind me (I stays there too) I was taking photos of opposite building (hotel), which is a castle. I mounted my camera on tripod and take the photos. About done, security on a bicycle told me that I can not use tripod there and only can shoot without it. That time was evening, without a tripod (unless A7S was out that time), it's impossible for me to just take like that. I argue awhile and then walk away, actually thinking of complaining him since I am the guest there. And furthermore, there is no sign saying no photography allow. Security are photography enemy most of the time. Just be careful of them when at oversea, they like to bully us.
