The Avengers & a Lemon

I'm so excited because today (finally after waiting what seemed like forever, but was really only 2 days) we walked down to where they are filming 'The Avengers' in downtown Cleveland.  Now, of course, I forgot to take my actual camera with me today, but I did remember my ipod so that is what these photos were taken with.  Its pretty exciting to see all the props and how much they have changed the block, but we didn't get to see any actual filming.  We are planning on walking down again tomorrow, and possibly taking a hike around the block to see the other end (I have my fingers crossed that we do!)  So here are my semi-crappy photos.  I'm going to try to caption each of them for you.  Enjoy!

Here is some fallen building pieces.  The largest one is easily 7 ft tall!

Here is how I generally watch the action.  This is the empty building beside me, and if you look really closely you can see outlines of a firetruck, etc.  Its much easier to see in person, but its definitely not the best view.

Here is F.D.N.Y. Firetruck :)
This is a N.Y. Police car.  All that dirt that you see on top of it is fake basically.  They added all of it, even the little pieces of stone.  So crazy!

This is a New York City bus.  The other side was more beat up, and the door was like falling off.  As you can see the bus is missing a few windows. 

Here is the crowd of people trying to get a peek at the action!

In this picture you can see that they have built up the front of an empty apartment building. There were a bunch of posters underneath, by the side walk.  There are also large pieces of road or building in the middle of the picture.  And you can see a taxi that has been flipped, as well as a couple of police cars.
So there are all my pictures from today.  Hopefully we will get to see some more tomorrow.  Also, since this is a nail polish blog I wanted to share with you a little something that I did this week.  I had my nails painted dark blue (will be posting the base color soon), but I wanted to see if I was capable of creating a cupcake mani.  So I gave it a try, and I was pretty pleased with the results.  Now I just need a birthday party to attend :)  Also, we have decorative lemons on our dinning room table, so I tested one as an object to hold for pictures.  I'm not really a fan, so this will probably be the only lemon pic.
It makes me hungry!

I like the lemon.

@Gman: Joe did do a wonderful job. It makes me so happy that we are able to use his talents. And since you like the lemon, maybe I'll try it again :) I was surprised that you didn't comment about the movie set pics...
