lunch with inflatable background
tamron 17-35mm f/2.8-4
awesome! i want to be part of the group sitting in the balcony on the upper left! there's orange there!
GREAT shot. Ok, why the inflatables???
man, he must really be stinky to make everyone else use a double!!! great find matto, as usual. ;-)
AMAZING photo. First aid class? (How do you find yourself in so many intriguing situations, by the way?)
its like some freaky dream, I like it...why inflatable people? can i borrow some for a party I am having
thanks all! wow, those comments are coming pretty fast on this one. i've got a nice piece of homemade apple pie for the first person who guesses what this pic's all about :)
kathleeen: i blame toronto. and no, i was not attending the world's largest first aid class. good guess though.
Matt - I think I'm probably ineligeable for that pie, aren't I? :)
That caused a triple take for me.
I reckon they are crowd fillers on a film set
Ok, I've been thinking about this all day now. (Damn you.) The clock on the balcony says 8:20 and the light is streaming in the windows, so the guy is eating breakfast, not lunch. (It looks vaguely like eggs.) He is wired for some reason, but whether it's a mic or his iPod, I don't know. He has notepads in the seat next to him. Is he a director, and is a film, TV show, or commercial being shot? (The lighting and framing are really great, by the way -- never mind the sheer delight of the subject matter.)
Jim gets pie (in a box, shipped overseas, parcel post). Well done!
Nick, I really hope you're not inelligible for pie because that would be horrible.
Kathleen, you can have pie because you thought about my photo all day, and because you noticed that the clock didn't match the light. Excellent sleuthing! However, you interpreted this wrong. It is really lunch time but the clock is set to the time in the scene we were shooting.
Now that the mystery is solved, I'll confer (as a close colleague of the man pictured here) that he really is stinky.
see?? i knew it! that should be worth some pie man! ;P
You're a waitress, get yer own pie! ;P
Ahh, but does she get her own *pieman*?
Holy obscure references Rookman!
you want my address to mail me the pie?
jim: yes, but will you settle for cherry?
I must've missed it.
What is going on in this scene/shot?
Josh: there is only one real person in this shot, the rest are inflatable dummies being used as extras on a film set.
Yeahhhhh!!! The CTS (Central Tech School) auditorium :) I use to work in stage crew, working with the audio & lights. This was usually the scene every so often when movie company's use to come in and shoot a few scenes. I remember them having the same setup when they filmed a scene for "Angels in the Infield". Good memories of that school :D Beautiful shot btw
