'Hmm. See that's the thing about you people, I just wish you were invisible'
Even after twelve years I am astonished when people think it's ok to be gigantically rude to photographers. The chief tog took one for the team and I bristled in the background. In a parallel dimension I shook his hand enthusiastically with a 'well now you'd hardly like it if I said I feel the same way about priests'
We can't have a world where people go around telling other people they wish they were invisible. There'd be riots. What if the butcher said to the farmer 'you there, could you not send the cattle on to market by themselves?' Or the candle-stick maker to the bee-keeper ' I need something to put in these but can you keep your big hat on?' Society would unravel. And what's not to like. We only take your picture, we don't commandeer your soul.
