World's Worst Paparazzi

I know I'm on the lookout for a new job right now, but I think it's safe to say we can rule this one out!  I went to lunch with a friend who was visiting from the US (have to share something about that later, but I'll do the good stuff first) and guess who was a few tables away from me - my old buddy Stellan!  Seriously, it's getting awkward.  I mean, dude, if you want me to marry your son you need come out and ask and stop just following me around ;-)

Okay, dude in black shirt walked past just as I was taking photo.  That's not my fault.

The top of his head.  Ummm... look carefully.

A clear shot!  Kinda.  Should have zoomed in some more, but... well... I didn't.

So anyway.  I can finally prove I saw him and not have weirdos emailing me to say I'm fantasizing my own neighbor.  I mean seriously!  If I was going to fantasize a meeting with that family, it would not be him (sorry, sure he's very nice and all) and there would not be so many people between us... or so many clothes................................. sorry got distracted there.

Actually, the main reason the photos are so bad is that I was really conscious of not bothering him or making it obvious - I mean, dude gets to enjoy Saturday lunch like anybody else, right?  I walked past him when we left and could have got an awesome close up, but he probably would have seen me then and that would a) not have been fair on him and b) I'm a little scared of him.  Somebody with that many kids is going to have a lot of experience in chastizing, right?!  But most importantly, it's just not really the done thing here and I totally respect that.

Sorry but I think you are being kind of hypocritical here. You say you respect people not bothering celebrities, but you still took pictures of him. Okay, maybe he didn't notice but still these photo's are up on a website of him in a private moment which maybe he wouldn't want. Who cares if people doubt you, you know what's true, people are crazy on the internet! Not meaning any offense and this is just my opinion but I think that if you really believed what you said about respecting privacy and whatnot you wouldn't have posted these. JMO. Love your blog otherwise!

I don't know where you got any of that from, having lunch in the middle of thousands of people isn't exactly a private moment!! And I said I COULD have got a better photo and I didn't so as not to bother him!! I posted these because people wanted me to, ever heard the expression "pics or it didn't happen"????? Somebody here needs to back off a little and chill out.

Sorry but if you put this stuff out on the internet people are going to comment. He wasn't on a red carpet or being interviewd by a journalist or anything, you said yourself it was his Saturday lunch = private moment. You obviously think it's okay to post these so you did, I don't so I'm saying so. Free country!

Oh whatever! Yeah I do think it's fine to post photos I took of my own neighborhood, I could have been taking photos of those two girls and it wouldn't exactly be my fault that another guy who lives here got in the background - I was at the bar first btw, if anybody followed anybody it was him!!

I'm kinda on the fence with this one. On one hand, I think it does suck for some celebs that they have to give up so much privacy to do what they do, but on the other hand I like to look at pictures of them so I like it when people take/post them!

I see nothing wrong with taking a picture from far away. You didn't interfere with his lunch and you played it cool. I would have done the same thing.

Part of being a celeb is dealing with this stuff. They know this going in.

Thumbs up from me!

Just so I don't have to comment twice, you got me all curious and shiz about the other thing. I do think it's weird that his friends don't know you guys split up.
