Took me ages to get this shot, purely because all the mothers were staring at me whilst I snapped a pic of a young child that ain't mine

    Great photo!
    Simples thing to remember about taking photos of kids that are not yours - If the parents look like they read The Sun, The Star, The Mirror or The Mail do not take photos of their kids. All photographers are potential paedos to them. If they look like they can't read always check out the hair styles - if they have a Council Estate facelift (you know the one - ponytail so tight it pulls the face up) do not take photos of their kids. They may not think you're a paedo but they may think you're from the social services spying on them, getting enough evidence to take the children off them - which means less benefits. Anyone else - you should be fine if you ask them and explain what you are doing.

    LMAO!! That's my cousin, but interestingly, when I was there I was still really tentative about taking a photo of him in case the paedo-squad hidden in the crowd thought we weren't related and put me in the slammer. Either that or someone with a bad hairstyle may come and claim him for their own in order to make it seem like I'm taking a picture of their child and cause a pointless argument in front of loads of people, including paedo-police. I don't want to do this anymore...
