photo shoot

Today I observed a photo shoot in progress at a street corner in town. I had a camera with me today and took a few shots of the activity. This photo is just one of nine taken. Unfortunately, I only had my small camera (HP) with me rather than the Sony camera though its better than nothing. The three guys in the centre of the frame (including the one spinning the basketball) walked from the bottom of the frame toward the cameraman (left side of frame) then back to where they had started. Then the cycle started again as photos were taken each time. One of the guys was carrying the basketball (or dribbling or spinning it) while another had a skateboard in hand but I have no idea what the third had, if anything. This was likely a shoot for some kind of advertising. It all reminds me that I need to get moving to get my own act in gear (photo shoots). The plan is to start during the summer. Currently I'm working on a business card before I get started. More on all that later! - V.

My question is out of context (not about the film shoot), but I have always wondered about your banner or masthead, is that locale near Gibson's Landing?

Its a welcomed question. I took this shot while on the ferry from Horseshoe Bay to the other side of Howe Sound, and yes, you are right, it is near Gibson's Landing which was to be my ultimate destination. The photo was taken in September 2007 and was cropped to fit the banner. Gibson's would be to the right just off the frame.
