hello, don.
i am rather curious about the circumstances of these photos--particulary those of the first. They both raise all sorts of questions regarding what is considered private vs. public; and i am quite curious about the process by which you determined that what is depicted was proper to shoot and display publicly.

by the way, I think that anyone doing anything interesting necessarily prompts, via their work, such questions from time to time.

Hi Christopher,

Well, you've caught me -- I probably had absolutely no right to take that photo, and I am probably exposing myself to a certain amount of liability by shooting and posting it... I had to compute which would be more important -- not violating anyone's privacy, or getting a nice photo of some people innocently enjoying themselves...

But don't get me wrong -- I don't go around looking for situations like this -- I'm not the guy who takes his camera to the nude beach... Those people were stretched out in the place I wanted to go and were preventing me from doing so... Even though they could be clearly seen from the road, at least I respected their privacy enough not to tip-toe through their gathering...

So, there you have it -- kind of a shakey justification for the shot... It was invasive, yes, but I doubt if much harm was done...

yes, those circumstances do, for me at least, make the issue of propriety not so clear; that is, given your description, it is tricky to determine to what extent they expected or deserved privacy. My instinct is to ask: can this photo plausibly be harmful to the photographic subjects ? i would say not in this case. And there are more questions i would ask.

haha. just for the record, don, i absolutely trusted that you took the photo and posted it in good faith. it was just that the subject--private vs. public--was so ripe given the content of that particular photo. I can honestly imagine your aiming your camera at what you found in this instance in a similar way as you would at, say, a rabbit or deer.

My understanding of the way the law works in the US is that anything on public property or shot from public property is fair game.
There's an implied expectaion that if you are on public property you are within the public domain.
