From the venerable D200 when she (the Nikon) was young.

Very nice, Rob. And you didn't need to blur her face.

No idea if she was wearing anything as old-fashioned as a watch!

My interest, you will understand, was focussed wholly on the wonderful architecture of the globes.

No, she was out on the street, so according to many, fair game... ?

Now this one was grabbed indoors one day via iPad whilst having lunch in a not-very-nice alternative place, so yeah, definitiely a touch of the peepings, or let's be kind and call it human interest:

Good shooting, Rob, but you keep me ROTFL with the obstructions Europe has come up with to prevent something as deadly and horrible as the work of people like that nasty Henri Cartier-Bresson. Then I thank the Lord that the United States (so far) has remained relatively sane. Here's a summary of that sanity: http://www.krages.com/phoright.htm

Well, the US is another country with a different culture.
For example they like Baseball and American Football, something most Europeans would find extremely boring, I'd bet.
It's just like that, different people. Different concept of what mutual respect is, IMHO
And, again with all respect, by all that freedom to hunt anyone who ventures out of his home, the US has not produced many HCB's, as far as I'm aware of.
Cum grano salis  ;)

Rab, try Robert Capa,Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gene Smith, Robert Frank (an import), Garry Winogrand, Lee Friedlander, Berenice Abbott, Helen Levitt, Elliott Erwitt, just to name a few off the top of my head. I guess I could come up with a more complete list if I had time to do it, but you get the idea.

I expected that  :) And you're right
But many of these I regard as "concerned photographers", even if they did "street".
But you also produce Gildens and other paparazzi and legally you cannot do anything about that. Or so I'm told.
You are always risking appearing in FB or Instagram with your finger in your nose or worse.
A different way of life I guess.

Paparazzi is an American word, right?

Eh? You lost me there, Rab. Street pretty much seems to me the definition of what genuinely "concerned photographers" do. And I'm not talking about those who advertise themselves as "concerned." Real street concerns itself with the interplay between people and between people and their environment. You can't do that if you can't shoot people.

I expect you to know, of course. Paparazzo was the name of a sensationalist photographer in La Dolce Vita.
It's now a synonym of those notorious photographers.
He's not a likeable character.

I'm entering quiscksand here.

Eugene Smith, Gordon Parks, Ernst Haas are concerned photographers IMHO.
There is some quality in their photography, compassion, humanity, that one does not find in the photography of most street journalists, who are either indifferent or plainly abusive, like in my example before.
