Is it just me?

I like the concept of street and candid photography and am inspired by so many wonderful photographers on here.

Yesterday I was in the city with friends, had my 70-200 on my 2nd camera and was all fired up to take candids…. but I couldn’t do it. Too concerned that people might think I’m a pervert ore something.

Is it just me, or do others have similar misgivings?

I note that the first three inspirational RB’ers that come to mind are all female. Is that where the difference is? Has society deemed that a male with a camera is a pervert, yet a female with a camera is an artist? I sincerly hope not, but that is how I see it at the moment.

Interested in your comments.
