Why is it called “Tourist Season” if we can’t shoot them?

Following a trip to Camden on Sayurday to get some new Docs I was struck by how true this statement is. For some reason Camden seemed to have been injected with hundreds of random tourists. So firstly the place was more packed than I’ve ever seen it.

Secondly and more importantly it was packed with a load of stupid people who seemed to find everything wonderfully amusing. They milled around laughing and taking photos of anything and everything. In fact one tried to take a picture of the stall holder I was talking to, however was soon told in no uncertain terms that if you’re not going to be polite and ask then you can move on.

As she quite rightly said to me the people there pay a lot of money to have a stall, they are not a museum for you to gawp at. They are real people who should be shown that respect.
