This is just one celebrity sighting I happened to catch on film, or pixels, that is. Just walking around, we see famous folks all the time, but it’s a bit of a challenge to get a shot without being obvious, and I kind of hate to be one of “those” people who push their way into peoples lives. I have a shot of Robin Williams hanging out with his kids, right here on my blog. Just type his name in the search box to find him. The story was kinda funny. I saw him. He saw me with my camera. I pointed to my camera, as if to ask, “May I”? He nodded, as if to say, “OK”. I snapped the shot. We smiled at each other and parted … without a word.
This shot was taken a couple months ago, while I was having cocktails with friends, at the Intercontinental Hotel lobby bar, and in walked Gayle King. This pic is from my cell phone, and I thought I was being very surreptitious, until I looked at my shot. She was looking straight into the lens. Had I known, I would have at least waved and I’m sure she would have waived back.
Just keep your eyes opened while you’re here. You’ll never know who you’ll spot. I’ve seen Nicholas Cage, Gwyneth Paltrow, John Cleese, Bjork, and more.
