Hexod.us points out one of the creepiest groups I’ve seen on Flickr to date (okay, I’m not naive, I just don’t explore a lot of the fringe groups). It’s called “A Girlwatchers Club.” Rule #2 for the group? “Images must be made in public. No peeping tom pictures through your neighbors window or hidden cameras in bathrooms please. Nudity on public beaches and women walking up stairs in skirts are OK! (emphasis added)
The group creator is called Girl Watcher (Robert Del) who takes photos of women in Los Angeles, specifically in Pasadena, The Grove and LA Farmers Market. While you might think they’re simply candid photos of Los Angeles residents, he tags them with body parts and clothing (legs, skirt, blonde, highheels). Illegal? hardly. Something to get up and protest about? probably not.
So, if you’re a woman in Los Angeles who might have visited one of those venues, who might happen to have legs, perhaps worn a tank top or skirt this summer and are under the age of 50 check to see what Girl Watcher and his group thinks of you. Cuz it’s just an honor to be noticed, right?

UPDATE (8/13 11:20 PM): It seems that the description for the group has changed: “Rule #2: Images must be made in public. NO PEEPING TOM OR HIDDEN CAMERA SHOTS UP SKIRTS, PLEASE.
This is a group that celebrates and respects the natural beauty of all women.”
