|As soon as this chap passed me, I knew that I wanted a shot with him walking the track around Willoughby Park. It is a great little park not far from my house with this track, a skate-board hill, a footy field, and two playgrounds, together with BBQs and picnic tables. There is a pre-school up the other end, too. The land was purchased from the Forsyth Family in 1907, who were looking to get out from under their tannery business which had gone belly-up during the depression of the 1890s.|
So ... to the title of my post. To the best of my knowledge, this photograph is not illegal under the laws that operate in my state. I did not ask the subject for permission to take his photograph, and it stands to reason that neither did I ask his permission to post said image onto the web. Yet, these actions are against the law in other jurisdictions, eg France where Article 9 of the Civil Code states that people have a right to privacy, a right that is interpreted by judges, not laid down in law. And Australians travelling abroad, have to abide by the rules of the country through which they are passing.
