A few weeks ago, my husband and I were in a neighboring city of about 40,000. We had parked and were going into a store. A black man was sitting at the back of his car with a nice camera. I am an amateur photographer so I instantly 'knew' what he was doing. I take pics of things nobody else even notices - even the ground sometimes. A white guy was getting into his car and saw him and said 'what are you doing?' In a not very nice voice. The black man just replied 'taking photographs'
