E.L. Woody is a member of the paparazzi , that breed of photographer who chases after movie celebrities in hopes of shooting a big shot. So when one of Hollywood's biggest stars allegedly turned the tables and started chasing after him the other night, the idea came to Woody in a flash. Never mind the picture. Sell the story to the tabloids.

Oh, the urgent scramble of video cameras. Oh, the tanned men with their portable phones. Oh, the sheer LA-ness of it all. On Thursday, a day when an armored car carrying live ammo caught fire on the Harbor Freeway, drug agents nabbed 100 pounds of cocaine, and hundreds of high school students brawled in the streets, the merest mention of "movie star" still brought the press on the run.

They've tried reining in the paparazzi before -- with little success. There was the time Los Angeles County prosecutors vowed to use criminal conspiracy charges against photographers who drove recklessly while chasing celebrities around. And remember when the California Legislature passed a law making it easier for celebrities to sue aggressive paparazzi? But now, authorities are bringing in the big guns: L.A.'s much-feared parking enforcement division.

It was the shot heard 'round Malibu. Two days after a tabloid photographer was shot in the thigh with a pellet gun while staking out singer Britney Spears' baby shower, longtime residents and merchants of the Hollywood colony say they can well understand why someone might take aim at a pack of camera-toting paparazzi.

FOR Hollywood's young, rich and visible, and those who keep tabs on them, the two-block stretch of Robertson Boulevard between 3rd and Beverly is both famous and infamous. Trendy boutiques and pricey restaurants cater to the likes of Lindsay Lohan, Nicole Richie, Jessica Simpson and Britney Spears -- the kind of young women who think little of spending $155 on a pink baseball cap embroidered with the image of a cigar-smoking skunk or $495 for a bejeweled hairbrush.

Just before Christmas, I became acquainted with an aspect of Los Angeles that I hadn't experienced since moving here from London two years ago. It happened when I spent a week "on the beat" with one of the city's top paparazzi photographers, Mr. E.L. Woody. Coming to live in L.A. without even a passing interest in stars and the phenomenon of modern fame would have been as perverse as avoiding art and sculpture in Florence.
