A News Crew

I thought about leaving this pic for the people in their workplaces theme day later in the year, but decided to go with it today. I took this on Canada Day, at the corner of Elgin and Wellington Streets. Parliament Hill is in the background, along with quite a few revelers. The woman in red is a CBC reporter, who was walking around with a cameraman, talking to people attending the festivities downtown. On impulse, I took the shot.

  1. It looks as if you're not the only one taking a picture of this scene.

  11. Looks like someone else was taking a photo of her too. On CBC News we never get to see their legs or how short their skirts are. :)

  15. You had a good impulse. She's a looker. You might have gotten closer, though, and tried to interview her about her job and then taken her picture. Just a thought! :)
