This is why people hate photographers

I stumbled across this on flickr today. It’s a pretty excellent example of the very worst possible way to approach street photography.

Homeless people do not exist for the amusement of people who (presumably) have homes, and photographing people who are asleep or unaware is not portraiture. I wouldn’t go so far as to say taking photographs of sleeping homeless people should be outlawed, but I think I could go my entire life without seeing another one and be no worse off.

It’s also a terrible photo, but that’s incidental…
