I was on a bus yesterday evening,
and guys that were sitting in front of me took several pictures of myself.
At first, I didn't know what they were doing, so I was wondering why they kept looking at me,
but when I saw myself in their cell, I got so scared and didn't know how to react.
Besides, I had to get off so I didn't say anything.
But now I keep thinking about it, I feel extremely frustrated and upset. worry
Hopefully they delete my photos.

You were afraid because somebody took your picture? Why?

I'd be pretty pissed if someone took my picture without my permission. Who knows what they can do with it. (Oh yeah, I'm talking about the dirty stuff.)

I would imagine they could find plenty of pictures on the internet without going through the trouble of snapping a blurry cellphone picture of some random.

That's true. But some people tend to find these things... to their liking.

Some total strangers having my pictures on their cell...
Wouldn't that make you feel scared?
I personally find it very scary and disturbing.

It is definitely something very weird and random to do!

i've read dozens of times that the average person is captured on camera something like 300 times per day
might as well get over being shy!

don't worry about it, its not like they took a picture of you without clothes or doing something illegal

I was on the bus one time with a friend who fell asleep and I watched a guy take his picture while he was sleeping. That kind of stuff is a bit disturbing

Yeah, I'm with the ' you're afraid somebody took your picture, why? ' guy.. I guess it might be a little strange, but I don't see the big deal, maybe they thought you were cute or something :/.

Take it as a compliment,
Guys talk about a sexy girl they seen wherever all the time.
With the use of a cell phone, you can show proof.
BTW: if these guys were like 40, i'd be scared

Does anyone know if there is such a thing as the right NOT to have your picture taken, or a right to take someone's picture without his or her permission (a la paparazzi)? Maybe it's just me being self-conscious, but I don't like having my picture taken by a stranger out of the blue.
I believe you must have the person's permission if you want to publish it. I remember that my parents had to sign a permission form when I was doing something with the school (forgot what it was, it was many years ago; it may have been something sports-related) that they might take pictures of us children. And does facebook count as 'publishing'?

On a related note, there were those two girls on the bus, giggling all the time and taking pictures of the (cute) young bus driver with a cell phone. He did not appreciate it and kept them on the bus when he arrived at the terminal (did not open the doors at the front) and called his supervisor. I did see the girls in the terminal 15 minutes later and they seemed really upset.

So, can I go around and take pictures of everyone, like police officers, bus drivers, at the swimming pool (but not in the dressing room, duh)?

Opinions are welcome, but if anyone knows for a fact how thing are here in Canada, that would be great.
