this is candid/street photography to me
this is NOT candid/street photography.
there is a difference between xmm stalking and candid to me at least.

If we want to relax, banter around and have fun in Kopitiam that is one thing... (comments removed)

well ok, its just a jokingly comment. If needed I'll remove it.
can just replace the gist of what i said with "xxx is MY XMM". unless she is related to you in some way (and therefore you would have clarified that much earlier, i suppose), same points stand.
when you can respond to one entire post with just one weak counterpoint nitpicking on who said what... shows how much logic you have on your side.

btw, if you think that is "streets and candids"... there are much more meaningful moments than some girl with a camera walking down the street.
i'm not one to dictate what you do with your life, but i am more than entitled to voice my opinion that you need a life. same for leong23, tainted, and the other people who have expressed their opinion.
for someone who wishes to put on an appearance of being not narrow-minded, you sure don't seem to have an open mind with regards to others' comments.
问心无愧， you can say that this is the case, but actions always speak louder than words. defensiveness is a clear sign that you are not comfortable with what you are doing.. otherwise why do you care what people say if you have a clear conscience?

As someone who regularly reads this forum/occasionally posts, I'm sorry to say that I'm pretty disgusted with the blatant lack of maturity on display here. This same lack of maturity is obviously one clear reason why the fine line between portrait photography and perverse, XMM, whatever-else-you-wanna-call-it photography is so often crossed.
I have no idea who some of you people are. If you are married and have wives, shame on you. You not only showcase your distinct lack of social refinement, but you also trivialise your own marriages.
If you are still single, I don't think any of these antics will win you any favours.
If you are a potential detractor of mine and are all ready to say it is easy for me to take the moral high ground, then fine. But I'd rather be on the moral high ground than throw away my dignity over a conversation spawning from a girl at the zoo.
Xavier...hmm. How old are you man?
I've been through that phase before, but at the end of the day, it's all fantasy unless you made the move there and then. Savor the moment(s), and move on.
Also, I think it was not appropriate to post her picture here (as for reasons nightmare has mentioned), though it's not mine to say.
For a start, get to know the girls around you better first
TS was just hoping to find the girl in the photo... (He didn't post the photo initially, he just thinks that posting it up might help)
Those XMM comments and photos posted are not stirred up or posted by TS.
The over friendlyness between TS and the girl at the zoo lead TS to think that he has hope... (Chinese saying "1 eye see love")
Find some words/statement very profound and appeared to full of wisdom ...
Suggest TS to close thread as this is going no where.
TS cannot manage to find the girl and got spammers and flamers in the thread instead.
The whole topic is going off point and sort of like a irritation instead.
