I don't care about my body being seen. My only concern is the wrong person seeing me in such a way as to breach the law and cause me unjust troubles that I don't need.

Thanks for sharing.  I posted it to Facebook on a page about nudism.

OK
1) I'm with Bob, JOhn and Jbee on the subject of whether I care about being seen.  I don't care a jot about what is seen of me or being seen or who sees.  But I double agree with JOhn & Jbee that one would wish to avoid giving offence, as in any situation not just controversial nudity (unless giving offence had a positive purpose), and, along Jbee's argument, one definitely would not wish to be seen by someone who would then bring bad consequences by their reaction e.g. going to the law.  Since one does not know in advance who will take offence and who might act on the encounter to try and censure, in my world considerable doscretion is needed to avoid unnecessary  encounters.  I think Bob has a solid argument that says he should be able to do just what he likes within reason (that includes being naked!) when on his own, private property and that if someone happens to be able to see that by active looking then tough, their responsibility is just to pass on by with discretion, if they don't approve and they should be severely punished for trouble making as a result of their opinion about nudity.

2) Man on wind turbine - that's so cool!  It made me wonder if my mild vertigo would let me do the same if the opportunity arose.  I think if the distance from the middle to the edge was longer than a fall to the deck, I think I'd be alright.  But if shorter I'd be a trembling wreck! 

I suppose one has to pick fairly clement days to go up there!  When the rotor is going is there a breeze or is it calmer since the blades have extracted some energy from the wind?  I guess near the axis there's be little difference to the wind force.  Come on you Engineers!  Let's have some theories or knowledge. 

And what more unique, private and inoffensive location could one choose!  That guy is cool! 

But it is indeed a worrying phenomenon that drones are now able to peer and pry almost anywhere.  Is there no regulation?  You wouldn't be allowed to just take pictures anywhere of anyone if you were on foot.  So how does a drone make it moral to pry?

John,

there are lots of rules and regulations about the piloting of drones in the UK, including a ban on flying within 50m of any building or person (that's 50 meters in any direction, including vertically). However, few drone owners know what the rules are and even fewer care given that the Civil Aviation Authority (CA) seem not to have any resource to enforce the rules.

As for cameras anyone in a public place or visible from a public place can be photographed, all that has changed is how easy it is to get the camera to less accessible spots. Adding a camera to a drone does change the operating rules, but makes little difference in practice due to the inadequate enforcement environment.

Have fun,


Ian.

PS I don't suffer from vertigo to any great degree, but I can't say I'd fancy sunbathing on top of a wind turbine...

Not because I particularly care about being droned, but I do enjoy those occasional stories about the pesky things getting shot down by annoyed shotgun owners!

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/naked-sunbather-bewildering-manchester-office-workers-10492654.html

On a different note, the above story tells of a nude sunbather who has been entertaining nearby office workers for months, until one decided she wanted her 15 minutes in the limelight and decided to make a fuss. Go figure ....

Shot gun was my immediate thought. I'd enjoy those stories, too. I wonder, would the law sit on, destruction of private property, privacy rights, firing a firearm in an urban area? Depends I suppose.

Once again as I try to come to grips that some in the religious orders are actually human.

As I mentioned in an earlier post today maybe there is more fear from drones for those who need to keep a low profile.

People that do this sort of thing with drones are no different than peeping toms. It's one thing to be walking around and see someone naked and take a picture, but to fly a craft intentionally to seek out people to spy on?

I've heard rumors that ammo companies have come up with a load designed to knock a drone down. Don't know if that's urban legend or the real deal, but I don't have an objection to it.

I haven't been to a gun shop in many years. I kinda fell out, just a dab of target shooting every couple of years. I suppose that it is about time to investigate surface to air trajectory. The spread could be different than skeet shooting, I wonder if the load is used in a shotgun, or common calibers.

There are a couple of other forums I frequent but have not joined as their nudist ideals are not in tune with mine. They do offer some insight into things we discuss only from another perspective. In the drone thread of their forum the main concern is discharging a firearm in the city limits. Despite the peeping tom aspect it seems that law enforcement takes a dim view of a gun. Their solution was either a paintball gun or maybe a slingshot. There was an incident near here where a drone operator, who said he working with a real estate agent, took photos of a woman sunbathing on her deck. Once the video was observed by law enforcement he was charged with invasion of privacy. Haven't heard anything since but if it goes to court I'll try to post links.

Oh, and the dreaded 15 minutes of fame! I would hope she becomes ostracized from her work group for spoiling a good thing. Now can you imagine the frustration of the local police if the building had been under watch for months and by calling the paper it blew the whole operation? Am I reading too much into the story?

The paintball solution is silent, but the fallout could be messy for someone else and they are very inaccurate. I'd like to suggest air-soft, BB, or better a competition quality pellet gun, all relatively silent. There may be more sport to it than a skeet shoot with a shot gun. They are slower and hang around, making a fine target.

I'm wondering if the drone operator has a video recording of you shooting down his drone?  Or, does the video go down with the ship?   Anyone know?

If the camera is doing the recording internally it would depend on whether the recording was recoverable when the remains are found.
If it is simply a camera transmitting to a base station then anything the base station is recording will be retained.
