    Thanks for sharing that Ray. I got a big laugh just when I needed one.

    Are paparazzi considered "Professional" photographers? A lot of the stuff they capture don't look anything like what a Professional would take. As long as there's a hint of something they can sell to some tabloid, it's fine with them.

    Hard to get surprised at the excesses of papparazi. That is what they do-in your face stuff- what a large marketplace of readers want. Shots of the big stars with stretch marks, that stuff. Nicole's ex Tom was pissing mad about them when they were shooting Eyes Wide Shut in London. Then Tom started going publicly nuts himself.Same with whatsisname,Russell Crowe, Mr Shortfuse. I don't know what an "AVO" is,but I am sure a long telephoto lens would make it unecessary :-). PS. Is the Morning Herald one of the classier papers, just wondering Ray, I bookmarked it for fun.--(?)

    Those guys really gave me a laugh.

    This may be a little OT, but I've often wondered why movie stars don't go back to releasing more publicity shots of themselves like the studios did years ago. The reason the paparazzi exist at all is to feed the public's hunger for candid shots of their favorite stars. The stars need to produce more of this stuff themselves under circumstances where they are in control of the content. If they did that there would be lots less demand for the kind of stuff the paparazzi produce. Also, I can't understand why these people get so angry when people try to take their picture while they're out in public. They are famous, for cripe's sake, and it's what they worked hard all their lives to achieve. Once they get there why on earth do they ever think they have a right to all sorts of privacy when they go out in public?

    An AVO is a court order issued to an individual to ensure that they stay a minimum distance from another person or persons. I think it stands for Anti-Violation Order.

    The Sydney Morning Herald is not what one would consider as a 'classier' paper. However, it can be fun reading.

    Cheers
