Papparazi Bahrania

Having lunch earlier on, I quickly took this shot of Steve Job, founder of Apple sitting on the table next to us. I had a good mind to go up to him and tell him I dont think the ipod is gona last 2 years.

Steve Job

And it really is him, as verified by this description in an article I found online:

Everyone knows Parisians are snobs. So it probably shouldn't have come as a surprise that an unshaven, middle-aged American, speaking English and dressed in cuffed jeans, sneakers, and a worn black T-shirt, was rudely turned away from the bar at a lavish fete inside Paris's Musee d'Orsay on September 16, 2003.

Except that the man was Steven P. Jobs, the cofounder and chief executive of Apple Computer Inc.

Ok Ok, big deal...sorry, i just wanted to prove to myself that it is useful carrying your camera everywhere, shame I didn't have it when I bumped into Madonna, Hugh Grant, and D-list like Jordan, Rebecca Loos and a host of arab celebs. This week the sequel to Basic Instinct is being filmed in my uni, wohooo, i'll keep an eye out for Sharon Stone... i really think i have a budding future in the paparazzi...there is a gem of a photo i'm hiding of an arab popstar in a charity concert whose brief appearance on stage exposed more than just a bad voice.. now where do i go to sell this photo?

LOL, girl is there a place that buys photos of the backs of famous people? And I thought you were just taking up a new hobby.

He claims he wears blue jeans, black turtlenecks and New Balance sneakers every day because he doesn't like to waste time thinking what to wear every morning.

he is a nerd...u can just imagine his wardrobes...a wardrobe with black t-shirts of every shade, ranging from dark wornout grey to saturated black and a wardrobe of jeans of all shades.. i tried eavesdropping on the conversation with the big antennas I have hidden under my headscarf but the place was too crowded and noisy...

personally i was more interested in the table next to his with 5 lebanese women who looked like they've just stepped out of Desperate Housewives film set...

people-watching is such a fun activity

lol. I see this guy twice or three times a year.

If you want to take a picture of a celeb or even to get his/her contact you will need to open a conversation with him/her first. Rule number one, DONT show them u will die to talk to them. These people see a lot of fans everyday.So u will need to show them that u r different.

When you see Charon stone, shout at her from a distance and say: I heard u dont like Moslim women. What r u doing here?. She would definitly come and talk to u. In the worst case, her body guards will throw up out :P
But seriously, this work. That what I do to approach a celeb.

btw, dont forget to get her number. Af far as i know she is single at the moment ;)
