"Wait! I'm Unarmed!" / by Eric Beteille

Saturday I unwittingly became part of an international incident. The local edition of International Pillow Fight Day took place in Los Angeles at Pershing Square, so I ventured downtown to capture the glee, the mêlée, the flying feathers. Much to my chagrin, the camera didn't protect me from getting directly involved, with at least 3 good blows from pillow-wielding soldiers. And trying to distinguish myself as an unarmed photographer, an impartial correspondent, there to document events, was no defense.
