5 bucks

I have been toying with myself about posting this picture all week. I don't usually take many shots of people for various reasons.. here is one.

 

Flinders Street station, with the other flickrpeeps, waiting for some to catch up.

This guy caught my eye, I didn't think I caught his. I quickly snapped...no probs.

A few minutes later, he came over, and said that I had to give him $5 for the picture I just took of him. I told him I didn't have $5, and things started to get slightly ugly.

He then told me to give him the film, when I told him it was digital he got more pissed, and I deleted the photo - well one of them in front of him..

He went on and on, telling me to give him $5 - to get money off my friends and give it to him.

I just started to move away and he started abusing me, with all kinds of insults - telling me he would smash my camera in my face...Until we met with the others and pretty much crossed the road.

 

Did I do the wrong thing?

Should I have uploaded at all?

Should I have left the original photo?
