on the way back from an assignment i saw some "outside paparazzi" happily papping, as it were, leslie bibb. who's leslie bibb? exactly.

so ... the outside people are nice for the most part. they don't fuck with me. had a cigarette with a couple of them.

in the midst of the smoke they took off and started papping the fuck out of some dude. i had no idea who it was.

anyway ... since this dude was walking in the direction of "wireimage camp central," i decided to follow him.

i walked up to him -- holding my leica -- and said, "i know you hate motherfuckers like me."

"what kind of motherfucker are you?"

it was mr. malkovich.

to this date i had no b/w on him so i asked, "may i make a frame?"

he stopped.

he grinned.

i made a frame.

he said, "you can make another."

to which i replied, "i only needed one."

at this point he said, "i really appreciate the way you approached me, what's your name?"

we then walked down main street and talked about films.

and cameras.

and he asked where he can see my work.

'twas really fucking cool.

Wow, that's amazing. He seems like such a fantastic person in real life and not to mention his fantastic acting capabilities. Nice that you got the chance to meet him even though you didn't have any knowledge of who he was.
