Urgh, I know how you feel. I lived in a very rural area of Japan for two years where I was the first foreigner (let alone the first black person) some people had ever seen. Random people just liked to whip out their cameras/phones and take my picture… on the train, walking down the street, etc. I felt like some weird zoo animal on display :-/

Is this a thing in England? I’ve had my picture taken in England, but it was other tourists: the lady pointed and told the guy, “Honey, take a picture of that English girl,” and he pointed the camera at me and clicked. I was like “Nope – I’m a tourist, just like you, jackass.” I guess I’m in their photo album in between Westminster Bridge and Big Ben. 

I would feel really creeped out if I were you. But then, maybe you’ll find yourself on the Do’s page of a fashion magazine 🙂

That happened to me and my sister on the subway! We were sitting there and some guy took out his camera phone and videotaped us up and down. And when I shot him a nasty look, he just grinned and wiggled his eyebrows at me. We moved seats to the other end of the train. I saw him doing it to other ladies also. It was bad. 🙁

@Destinationwedding101:  True, there’s a big difference when it’s coming from curiosity/ignorance rather than some random creeper singling you out!

Do you live in LA or NY? Maybe he was a paparazzi and thought you were a celeb? 

As a teenager I lived in a high-rise in NYC and I naively used to leave my curtains parted while I lounged around in bed. I wasn’t undressing or doing anything dirty, just reading a book when one night I noticed some creep from across the street videotaping me. i could see the light from his camera. I turned off my lights and he turned his camera off and sat at his window for like 3 hours. It really creeped me out and I should have called the police on him but I didn’t. It still grosses me out to think he was a peeping tom.

@Destinationwedding101:  I think you should totally get them back by taking their picture! And then maybe do the eyebrow wiggling thing that nnyish‘s creeper did.

I was once at a concert… I admit, I was pretty scantilly clad (I had on a bright bathing suit top and a fishnet shirt on top of it.) This guy came up and started FILMING me. I wasn’t doing anything, just standing at the bar. I asked what he was doing and he just kept looking at me. I guess he thought I was going to take my top off. I told him to quit expecting it and walked away.

I guess I sort of had it coming. Its odd that it would happen to you in broad daylight lol. I would just consider myself creepily flattered and move on. It’s a funny story to tell though 🙂
