Urban climbing

A group of young boys were competing in throwing a plastic bottle on the cornice of the theatre. We were there, appalled, and scolded the guys. Only when I took a photo, the one who had thrown the bottle tried, in vain, to recuperate it. His friends,however, complained that I was breaching their right to privacy! Can you believe it? Shameless. By the way the bottle is still there
Very brave of you!

@peadar well, Peadar, they were not dangerous. Just stupid, and I hope they will behave better in the future. Who knows?

Good for you that you scolded them!

Fantastic shot! So sad some kids seem brainless...

Horrid! A thoughtless act and surprising reluctance on their part to see anything wrong with it. Their concept of privacy is clearly under-developed.

You did well to tell them off, if it will have an impact on them......who knows. They probably had a smoke, which made them stupid.

Typical boys! I hope the bottle eventually gets moved!

Ooh that is brave of you, but you got a great shot!

Very nice street shot. I always marvel that you find so many people to pose willingly for you. But I guess these kids were the exceptions to the rule. I thought no one could be immune to your charms. But here in the States, anyone who is out in public has no presumption of privacy. and is subject to be photographed. I assume its the same there. What did you tell them when they protested?

Right to privacy!!!!! What jerks. Nice capture of the climber though

@jgpittenger @taffy @mbrutus I told them that they didn’t have any right to privacy, being on the public street, but also making themselves responsible of an illegal act. I promised I’d show the pic to the police. Which I didn’t. In addition in the picture none of the boys is recognisable because they were all minors. I just hope they were upset enough to think twice when tempted to do some minor vandalism again. Also I hope they won’t do major vandalism

Well done on saying something. Hopefully the threat of taking a photo to the police will make them think twice in the future.
