  1. Well I literally had a split second to grab this.....I even screwed up the white balance however thankfully I was in NEF mode.

    just thought everyone would get a kick out of this. by the way I sold it to a local paper. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ROTFLOL

  2. You're from Jersey, huh? Well, it's only natural: isn't that where T. lives? Was he en route to whack some wise guy? ;-)

    Cool shot, Geno: do you care to elaborate on how it came about?
     
  3. I was on my way home from a restaurant shoot when I saw their trucks where they shoot the Night Club scenes. I have been there before and have some others. I happened to have my Press Pass on and asked James if I could have a quick shot for the local paper. He looked tired and really wanted to get going home, but he still smiled and said he loved me and hurry up and take a picture. I fired one off and by the time the LCD lit up he already had his window closed and was gone.

    I have been there before and they really are a great bunch of guys, but it seems like the filming really takes it's toll on them once and a while. But they will always smile, give an autograph, or let someone take a picture; especially the locals.....since they grew up in the area where they film.

    Great shots, Geno. The kind of images that you will cherish for a long time. I can only imagine the smile on your face when you reviewed the images after the shoot. Stay well...
     
  8. I definately smiled.....but Honestly I was just glad they didn't have a bowling ball bag with them at the time; especially an empty one.

    Great photos, but I have to say the Paulie photo is my favorite. Has that character type feel. Just looking at his photo tells you not to mess with him.

  10. I'd have to say Paulie is most likely my favorite character on the show. I will never stop laughing over those scenes when he yanked the lanscaper out of the tree.
