Hello Mariusz,
Looking at your map of the UK I think you will still have to visit a lot of other counties. So don't move to another country before you have taken pictures in all counties of the UK :)
I think the kind of reaction you described is especially possible in the western world. In other countries, parents are rather proud when a foreign visitor takes pictures of their children. This is especially the case in India. I even remember a situation where a father came to put his child in front of my camera.
I guess it probably also depends on how problems with abused or missing children have recently been in the news. But of course people can ask in a friendly way to stop taking pictures.
The fountain on the photo looks more like a public swimming pool. Not every day the weather is so warm. Such an opportunity should be celebrated. Good choice of title.
Best regards, Paul

Hi Paul,
ha ha
Well I know what you mean. When I lived in Ireland I took it more seriously but since I live in the UK I have a child and my trips are usually designed in a particular way so my personal hobby/challenges have to wait a long time but nevertheless I am always happy to have a new addition. Some countries have quite many counties while other just few. Also when I look at the map of people who live here their whole life mine is quite similar to theirs So I am proud anyway
Kind regards,
