But some guys and their dogs are in the way, joking and jostling and flirting with a girl, so I wait patiently for a while before asking politely if they could, for just a second, move. They do.
And just like the time I didn't recognize Pam Anderson as I asked her to please wait while I got a shot of the sunset, I've once again startled a celeb by asking him to get out of the picture.
"You're hilarious," I tell Kevin Dillon.
"So are you," he says, and laughs and laughs.
