Photog Eats It While Snapping Britney

Photographing a train wreck may be hazardous to your health.

TMZ caught Britney Spears exiting Equinox Gym in West Hollywood yesterday, where she was immediately engulfed by photographers -- one who particularly challenged by walking backwards. As Spears made her way to her car -- giving TMZ a shout out along the way -- one paparazzo backed right into a trash can and went flying to the ground.

Spears was spotted later that afternoon shopping at Gap Kids -- where she told our camera, "I love Paris!" when asked about Ms. Hilton's upcoming jail sentence -- and she was out again last night at Teddy's. Girl gets around!
