No, I haven't read the article closely, this is a viceral take.
I'm way tired of papparazzi in general and specificially in the LA community. I used to see major stars at the country market/wherever, no big deal, we gave them room.
Papparazzi coming in, serious grrrrrr.
At the same time I feel this way viscerally, I also have a pro photographer bent.
I'll have to work this out in a slurry in my brain pan.
But presently I'm pro surfers.
