My view exactly and when I was shooting street I abandoned the "sneaky" technique for the direct approach for this very reason. That's not to say I didn't try to get the shot as quickly and unobtrusively as possible and sometime I bottled it and missed the shot completely. Yet on other occasions I would get "in the zone" and become so preoccupied with the picture that I lost my natural inhibitions.
