    Hi everybody :D ...been out of town for a few days and a bit busy but I got lots of piccies to show.
    Finally combatted my fear of approaching people and feel exceptionally good for doing so.
    Starting with these. I'm copy/pasting this next bit from my account at Trekearth.

    I was wandering around the set of Brad Pitt's latest movie being filmed for a few days in Winnipeg trying to get the million dollar shot of him and Angelina....no luck there.
    Heard some nearby drumming and wandered over to find Rob drumming and singing a native song - he runs sweat lodges and sundances at the nearby Thunderbird House. He graciously allowed me to photgraph him as much as I liked.
    He told me the drumming represented the mother's heart beat to a child in the womb.
    This first shot is one of my favourites from the day...my own million dollar shot in my eyes. ;)

    This one is not good :( but I wanted to show him to all of you in context with the drum.

    The first IS the best of the series, in that you and I agree wholeheartedly.
    What takes you out to the sites of film productions?

    And I am glad you had the chance to photograph ROB.
    Bah. Brad Pitt. Angelina Jolie.
    You see them in magazines every day.

    But Rob.
    I meet him here for the first time!
    And that is worth a lot more! :)

    Thank you for showing.
    And the first one with the flowing hair IS the best.........!!!

    I like No 2 with the blue background!:thumbup:


    So what did you say to him? "Hi mate, I'd like to photograph you drumming if that's OK?"

    I wouldn't have a clue what to say!:blushing:

    Million Dollor post JK. A great journey day for you man! I love the photos of this moment you captured and really dig the story line. I can really feel the vibes in these images, as well as the beat of his song. Awesome job :thumbup:

    :D Thanks Corinna...that's exactly how I felt after I met Rob: who needs brad pitt anyway :p (i'm sure a few of the ladies may have words but who knows)
    I just happened to be in the city at the same time as filming so thought i'd chek it out....glad I did. :D

    Woodsac and Christian...thanks for stopping in and commenting. :)

    Plastic Spanner....that's exactly what I did 'cept we don't say mate here :confused: :D

    Thanks Mako...appreciate the kind words as always....looked back over the pics and I could feel it too :D

    Found a better shot of him drumming:
