Another random street shot from Paris bundled with an implicit apology to all the uninformed models involved.

Of course you are breaking the law in France. As far as I understand it in France you own the right to your image so in theory even street shots need permission. But, who cares!
Samarth: my thoughts exactly... i doubt im going to use this commercially anyway...
I can't resist taking shots like this Sam ... and posting them from time to time. Great in black and white.
Samarth: thanks richard...

Interesting expressions on these 3. Great street shot.

In the USA as far as I know it is fine to take photos of people in public, expectation of privacy in a public place and all that. But I think you cannot sell without permission from the models unless they are photojournalism...You definitely don't sell them for advertising. I'm not sure exactly what is ok and what is not, the laws seem a bit vague, and do seem to change. If you plan on selling them, when in doubt carry a pocket release.
Samarth: i think it should be ok for private display but i'm pretty sure i can't use this for commercial purposes...
Funny and well done, the right hand woman looks a bit angry about your shot !
Samarth: grin thank you...
The Emperor on the left sets this off so
Samarth: thank you darren...
Great expressions on all three. The one woman seems to be looking right at you.
Samarth: thanks marta... byt the time she looked at me i was pretty committed...
