Daily life picture

So... I hope I can post this one without problems....
This is the first time I ask someone for a picture, hesitant first but very confident later on I had the pleasant surprise that she said "ok".
I was walking down the street yesterday and in a corner café a tv-commercial or film was being shot. Inside the café the actors and producers were drinking champagne and taking pictures of themselves. Meanwhile outside the crew and technicians were getting everything ready to shoot, and the waitresses of the catering service were also preparing everything. I passed them and noticed this girl and asked for her picture. She replied: "but all the famous (people) are inside". So I thought that every person needs to be famous sometimes (even on my blog) and today it´s her turn.

Ahh I love your comments on this one. You're right, in a film production, we often forget about the "others" working hard to make it happen. Exactly like this girl :) I like this picture a lot and the comment that goes with it.

It's good practice. Most people say yes - I've only been refused once (since January).
