From time to time to time in my travels, like on this tour bus,a quick glance says yes, I shoot first and ask questions later. Best regards,

Avery delicate subject, indeed.

Perhaps one could take the photo(s), and then approach the subject to tell him/her that you've just taken a photo, and disclose what you plan on using the photo for (personal, commercial, etc.). Offer to show them the photo on the spot (obviously, this applies to digital cameras only), and offer to delete the photo right there in their presenceif they so request.

I've taken many candid shots in public settings (ususally before UT football games). I've had many people notice that I've photographed them, some of the smile & occasionally they approach me and ask about it. I'll hand them my card & tell them I'll be glad to email them a copy, if they email me first. I even show them the image on the LCD and I've never had one person object.
