In Some Cities, Selfies With Locals Are Not Permitted Print

Just about every senior traveler today has a smartphone, and instinctively points it at everything in sight. Including grabbing colorfully-clad locals and monuments to be with them while shooting selfies.

The rules are simple. Before pointing your lens, be sure local laws allow you to shoot, including or excluding selfies. When you want to pose legally with a local, always first ask permission. And respect no for the answer. In some cities where selfies have been a problem, the practice may be totally forbidden, and violators could be arrested and fined.
