Paparazzi....No Way!

An interesting thing happened to me yesterday while walking around Downtown Chicago. I parked in an underground garage, then set out to shoot whatever came along...a sort of street photography mission. As I ventured off Michigan Avenue ( the magnificant mile ), I happened upon some catering trucks that serve meals to those that are involved in making a movie. I walked up the a security person (I had my D2H and 28-70mm f/2.8) hanging off my shoulder and my sling camera bag on my back. I asked the security person what was going on in the area and he replied, "keep walking, your paparazzi!". I laughed and said, "No, I'm a firefighter just taking some pictures". He replied, "No way dude, firemen can't afford cameras like that...your paparazzi...keep walking, Man". I snickered at him and kept on walking.

Later in the day on my way back to my truck, I happened onto another movie being filmed and while waiting to see what was happening, Jennifer
Anniston ran out from the building into a waiting van. I heard that she was filming something here in town. I found out from a security person on this site that the other movie location had Eminem (spelling?) and 50 cent.

The strangest things happen when you are wandering the streets of Chicago. :?

James,

I've been called many things throughout my lifetime...but never a paparazzi. The whole situation was rather comical. I can only imagine what they had to say about me after I walked away!

You lay one brick, you're not a bricklayer, but walk around with a camera and be called a Paparazzi, and now you are one... :lol:

I'm going to ask the question that everyone else is thinking.

Where is your photo of Jennifer Anniston?

Our pet paparazzi from LA would have gotten the shot.

Well Larry...

As I was talking with some vacationers from Canada, Jennifer ran out from a building into a waiting van and drove off. I did get a head shot of the other actor...I think his name is Vince Vaughn. The name of the movie is "The Break Up". Here's Vince Vaughn's image...he's in the red jacket getting into the van.....

My condolences go out to your country in this time of need. We are all behind you and know that both our countries will get through this mess.
