    Sometimes it's nice to have a long telephoto and just snipe away unnoticed. I try not to think myself as paparazzi. Or stalker. Or worse.

    I don't mind being a stalker as long as it's public domain!

    I guess stalking isn't the worst! Maybe peeping tom!

    It's been done for years. Believe it or not in the 1970s Astranar sold a 400mm f6.3 lens called "The girl watcher". It was even advertised in magazines and newspapers under that name.

    I've been taking quite a number of photo-journalistic shots, mostly with my mobile phone and as close to the subject as I can get without them knowing.:cool:

    Quality of the images can be pretty bad, because the location I shoot are normally very dark and flash is out of the question. My old Samsung mobile phone also don't handle high ISO too well.
