Kevin,I think you were more excited to see Santa than the kids! 🙂 Hope your holidays are fun-filled as well as sun-filled.
NancieM: Excited in more ways than one! After Santa made his way through the gate, I panned back a bit to capture his retinue of tiny elves, and then had to do a wide pan to bring Santa back into the frame. As my vertical filming angle may suggest, I was standing on top of the waste barrel by the security gate to get the best view. That wide pan shifted my weight so as to tilt the barrel, very nearly toppling me into the crowd! I managed to quickly grab the side of the ferry building with one hand and stabilize myself, averting disaster, and the pan and subsequent zoom show only a minor (if terrifying) wiggle. Phew!
Glad you weren’t hurt, Kevin!
I was wondering what you were standing on to get that perspective. 🙂
