    The Political Thread

    On relevant note, I don't understand UK politic and what is going on right now. It's not a sarcasm, I really don't understand it.

    The Dress (color perception)

    Yes, I remember this when it came out. I saw both colors on different times of the day, try see it again in different lighting and see if you guys also see both. I think it has something to do with color spectrum or something else. And this is the newer version of object with similar problem my sil sent me.

    The WTF Thread

    Ironically, I became very aware of that (people might mind that their pictures are taken) when I was really into photography quite sometime ago. I took pics of mostly nature; animal and scenery, and some unique and colorful city, but I wasn't interested in taking human pictures, sometimes they are far away or just a background of the activity or city scene, or from behind against a relevant backdrop that tells interesting stories. Never with visible identifiable close-up faces. Then there was this old lady, in a small village in Hoi An, Vietnam, not an usual tourist destination, selling a handmade wooden bird figures, painted red, neatly arranged in a circular bamboo baskets put on her side, sitting on steps, leaning against a peeling wall, one leg up in relaxed sitting position. She wore a bamboo circular hat, traditional styled cloth. It was mesmerizing to me so I couldn't help and took a snap, but then she was aware of me, and gestured politely, that she didn't want her picture taken. At that point actually, the first time that I could remember, of taking someone's picture frontally, alhough I can say I'm not guilty of other occasions (but not because I was considerate, it just happened that human were not the object of my interest. But I was guilty of seeing my fellow travelmates taking pictures of people without thinking about whether the target minds). At that point I really thought about yes, it seemed really inconsiderate for me, annoying foreigner, thinking that it's okay to take her picture without asking, treating her going through daily life as something exotic. And it wasn't even the time when social media was a big thing yet, let alone now when every image could end up somewhere public. I still hardly ever take human's picture, but since then, I actually try to ask if I think it could be obtrusive, even when I only take dog's pictures, because I wouldn't know if they mind, and as a picture hater, I really get that. So there. Spoiler box is the above mentioned picture. I still really like it. P.S. Thanks for National Mall explanation! I heard about it before, but forgot, took me awhile to think about scary mall when people taking pictures of each other.

    The WTF Thread

    There are that. And couple of times when I noticed someone took pics and moved away, only to have it followed me. I mostly used some higher area as prep 'table' when I was about to feed multiple dogs and it was pointed on me. The dogs were on ground level. There was time when I was running and playing with them in the water and almost collided face first with someone's DSLR. Again, dogs on ground level. I know there is probably no malice or bad intention, it's probably more lively for whatever image they wanted to take about crazy dog lady, but again, it is very rude when they didn't feel the slightest need to ask if you mind. Heck, I ask for permission when I want to take picture of someone's dog.

    The WTF Thread

    I've read about kids suing their parents for privacy infringement for posting their pictures on social media without their consent, which, I don't disagree tha parents should respect their kids, especially when they risk the safety by putting up information publicly, although maybe suing is too much. Will we ever see that it's not okay to take stranger's image without permission too? I certainly hope so, in this era of camera phone, more often that not, I am very annoyed with people who think it's okay to blatantly take other's pictures or videos. My experience is not because I'm interesting, good looking or something, but I normally gather a big number of dogs around me, not intentionally, when I go for my beach walk with my dog; playing, interacting, feeding or merely sitting around them and somehow people find it interesting and okay to just point cameras. I hate it, think it's very rude.

    Shoot the Wall (A.K.A. The Rant Thread)

    I'm opposite, I always leave too soon, as soon as I'm able too, which I have never regret, actually. And I always try to be the one who leave before being left, even for family reunion, I fly out first, I am coward like that. I thought it's less sad, but it's not true.
