Robin Seimar, right, photographs Veronica Ericsson with the Hollywood sign in the background in one direction, and the downtown Los Angeles skyline in the other at Griffith Park on Sunday.

This came in response to people in nearby Beachwood Canyon who complained of too much tourist traffic in their neighborhood. But now the same thing is happening in Griffith Park.
