Near the corner of Saticoy and Sepulveda actors in Verdad y Vida (truth and life) washed cars, stood outside the Tangiers Motel, rode to the D&K Liquor store on bike, and dramatically flashed police car lights to pull over, frisk and handcuff a suspect and his large bag.
And a little man with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth confronted me as I photographed.
“Why you take picture of motel and police? Why you do this? Why you take picture of me near motel? What you doing? You not supposed to take picture!”
I showed him the back of my camera, the digital review of images just shot.
There were signs and more signs and no close ups of people.
He was not in my camera.
“You not supposed to take picture!” he said.
