No, I was responding to the generalizations in your post. My arguments are for a nuanced response to the issue, favouring those who are careful and concerned about others - in particular children.
My post was not generalizing. If you look at what I've said through this thread, you will find that I advocate a moderate attitude to all this - without abdicating the rights of the individual to do what he or she deems worthwhile. You, on the other hand, generalize against all activity that could be perceived as infringing on more-or-less imaginary rights of individuals.
The information recorded on the film belongs to the photographer, but the information about me being where I am, doing what I was doing, being with who I was, etc., belongs to me.
Your post was long and worthwhile, Alex. I just wanted to point out that, when I said information gathered about you belongs to whoever gathered it, I wasn't specifically talking about picture-taking. If it was known you were at Park X with Woman Y on Day A -- that's something that's known and does not belong to you. That is prior to any interpretation.
I don't disagree with anything you said in your post, though. You stated pretty precisely exactly why I like Winogrand, for instance.
