Photo Moment: Downtown LA, Saturday
Last weekend the downtown area had an interesting situation. Al Gore, the former VP was introducing his well-received documentary "An Inconvienent Truth", a film about how to clean up the Earth; meanwhile, about a half mile away at the Convention Center, tens of thousands of fans of adult films were getting autographs of their favorite stars as they celebrated all things dirrrty.
In what appears to be a dramatic change in the typical hey-look-who-i-met pose, LAist is now really upset that we didn't go to the Erotic LA convention. Talk about a Christmas card.
I walk into Erotica LA at 11:10 a.m. and see Alicia Rio. I raise my camera. She puts out her hand to stop me. "I charge!" she says.
"Press," I say and show my badge.
"Oh, you've written bad things about me," Alicia says.
"I haven't written anything about you [for many months]."
"That's what Dominic says.
"Anyway, I'm not comfortable with how my body looks. I don't want a lot of pictures."
An hour later, I run into Alicia again and she apologizes for jumping down my throat.
I don't try to take her picture.
