People frequently assume that the sole reason for taking a picture of a building is that you are going to evict the people inside it and tear it down. I had a woman (in Duluth) accuse me of “walking around taking pictures and making fun of us hicks,” which is strange because I’m one of “us hicks.” A lot of people are really self-conscious and paranoid.
