Public Enemies

Yesterday my sister and I took my mom to downtown Oshkosh to check out the filming of Johnny Depp's movie Public Enemies. The production had blocked off so many streets that it made it impossible to see what was going on. We walked around and tried to get some pictures. Since there was really nothing to see, naturally the only thing to do was to wait for a glimpse of Johnny Depp by the truck farm/base camp (whatever). We saw his car but didn't really get much of a glimpse. We took a break, because, despite evidence to the contrary we are really not that hard core!! We came back later as Johnny usually does a "meet and greet" at the end of the day. We even had my 3 year old nephew. Let me tell you, taking a three year old to wait on the street for three hours is not terribly exciting. (He almost fell asleep up there!!)

At least we had enough time to school the kid that Jack Sparrow would not look like a pirate, rather he would look like a regular dude! (It worked) Two hours in Zane had enough, but we weren't going to give up so easily. In the end our patience paid off! I was able to get three pictures, and shake his hand! He even shook Zane's hand! At the end of the night Zane summed it up and said, "I never want to go back there!" No problem! I hear there are even more streets blocked off and less to see today, which is fine with me because it has started raining!

I really like the flare from the sun in this picture!

This was complete insanity, I didn't think I had gotten any pictures with him in them at all, luckily there were two.

Here are some pictures of the spiffed up downtown Oshkosh area!!

It was more than I expected to see Johnny Depp up close. When he shook Zane's hand and said "Hi there little buddy" I was blown away. The other quote said to you was so cool,"Thank you for letting the circus come to town". I may not have had the opportunity to shake his hand, that is alright, I was just a part of something wonderful. Mom
