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.

Posed Candid by Armanius, on Flickr

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.
