What, Who & Where
Posted By: Bob Harris, 09-05-2014, 08:02 PM

I remembered a shot in this movie with the park in the background, so I pulled the motorhome off the road to take a couple of photos. A young couple pulled behind us and the man got out and started running up the road just like a scene from the movie while his wife photographed him. Their vacation hobby is going to different locations where famous movies were filmed and try to recreate the scene. So with all that said What is the movie, Who was running on the road and Where was it filmed?

Well, that might be the Best Little "Photo" in Pentax Forums if you did.

A great shot, Bob. If I had been there I am sure I would have taken a similar shot.

Cool idea, but I don't want to be around when they get to do "Jaws" and I'm not caring how big the boat is!

I'm vaguely toying with the idea of visiting at Christmas time, but flights are likely to be expensive, car hire problematic, and some of the places I want to go may be closed.

I know a couple of weeks before Christmas you can get some great discounts at many hotels, I'm not sure if there is ever a perfect time, guess you just have to do it and enjoy.

Thanks Bob - more likely to be between Christmas and New Year, unfortunately.

my first thought also bud, they were going to the Monument to act out a couple of scenes from She Wore A Yellow Ribbon and the Searchers.

Very cool- thanks for sharing (and nice shot in its own right)!
