Lights, Camera, Action
As I rounded the corner I sensed that there was something wrong. Usually at 9 AM the plaza streets are somewhat filled with cars, car wash guys with their plastic buckets which will wash your car, all the normal stuff you see.
On 3 sides of the big plaza there were no parked cars.
Across the streets there were no parked cars.
I was lucky to find a space for the Tracker, since it is small and tiny I usually take that to go shop. As I was walking to the market, several large van trucks pulled up and parked.
On my return a hour later, there were lights, generators, catering trucks, wardrobe vans, and a handfull of police blowing their wistles at anyone who even looked like they were going to park on the sides of the plaza.
They had already assemble several camera dollies, lots of reflectors and cables, lights and other associated stuff.
The reflectors were set up to illuminate Don Vasco, the Statue, The Man, The Center of the Plaza Grande.
I asked the policeman what they were shooting and he said a movie or TV......
I could have figured that out.
So, I got out of there before the traffic really got bad and more crouds gather on the side streets to gazed at Mexicowood......
It was kind of interesting to see no cars parked around the plaza in the middle of the day. never have seen that in all the years around here.
There is always a first....
