    Default How to look like a foreigner so can shoot in more public places

    Lets try to keep the suggestions fairly reasonable. Keep outrageous & overally stupid ideas to yourself..

    1. Stick some airport luggage labels onto camera bag?
    2. Have folded Spore map sticking out prominently being back pocket.

    Look naturally foreign... before the security come and question you, you go to the security guard to ask for directions and speak in a strange accent (either Korean or Japanese if you're Yellow Skinned Asian)

    wear a loud sticker and follow a guy with a flag, speak a different language and act blur when the guard talks to you
    carry a language dictionary and make funny sounds and point to the words in the dictionary

    guard: excuse me, you cannot take photos here
    you: oh! arigato (then you pass the camera to the guard and start to pose)

    Start learning Japanese language.

    What if I speak German language? Will I be treated as tourist?
