A Vehicle Doesn't Always Have Four Wheels

I had my post all prepared for "V." I was going to write about the vehicles of Broadway, buses, taxis and I even had a photo of an ambulance. But I found a movie shoot and I realized all vehicles don't have four wheels. In this case "V" is for vehicle, which, to quote Merriam-Webster, is something displays a performer's talent. On my way to work on Thursday I came upon filming for "Draft Day," which is directed by Ivan Reitman, who also directed one of my favorite movies, "Ghost Busters."

The chair on the right is Mr. Reitman's

This was the scene as I crossed the street to buy my coffee -- my regular coffee cart -- is on the far right of the picture.

Often the sidewalk is roped off during filming, but not for "Draft Day."

The film stars Kevin Costner Jennifer Garner and Chadwick Boseman, who is also in "42." I'm hoping to see "42," which is the story of Jackie Robinson tomorrow. 

Actual filming! One of the crew told me I was directly in front of the camera, but I hadn't noticed. I was too absorbed in taking pictures. Couldn't miss this opportunity. 

Busy, busy work week. I know I can slow down, but there's still a lot going on and I'm still there. I'm off to do errands on this beautiful spring day. I'm going to finish this blogging challenge -- so close! --and I'll be back to post "W" tonight. 

Wishes for a Wonderful Saturday!

Victoria is a popular location for filming as well, so we often see the vehicles and cameras around town. Still, it is exciting each time!


How exciting to be actually on a set of a movie while doing what you always do so close to home.

Oh, my! How exciting to be right in the midst of filming! There have been times when movie crews have chosen parts of our surrounding area for filming. Always exciting!
