It looks to me that the girl is looking away and the man is also not happy at being photographed.
People around are also looking on the scene.
But you say that in America as soon as you hit the street you're free wild so it shouldn't matter. Am I wrong?  ;D

When you're out on a public right of way, Rab, you have no expectation of privacy. I realize that in Europe nowadays the governments think that if you're out in a crowd you have an expectation of privacy, silly as that seems. You can read all about it here: http://www.krages.com/phoright.htm. Krages is an attorney who's also a photographer.

Thank you Russ, very interesting. I've read also the articles on French and UK rules, which are more like those I'm acquainted with.

As for silliness, I cannot judge, these are very different cultures as it seems. I couldn't say one is better than the other.
You get used to live in one and expect mutual respect following their ways.

Youíre right, of course, Rab. Cultures vary. Iíve been fortunate enough to have been exposed to several besides the United States, all in Asia. But what really bugs me is that France, birthplace and home of Henri Cartier-Bresson would let this happen. HCB showed all of us the beauty and significance of human interrelationships through his street photography. Again, youíre right. Itís not silliness, itís tragedy.

That's the "ain't i something" look and walk  ;D
Yes, she became aware of the camera just prior to that point. If it had been video there would have been a turn, chin lift, return to face camera, and look down the nose. LOL  ...and a bit more fancy prance.
