Photos of Robin Williams in Ballard

Posted by Geeky Swedes on July 31st, 2008

Update: Following up on several tips, I grabbed the camera like a Ballard paparazzi and discovered Robin Williams and a film crew shooting along 34th Ave. near 65th Street. In fact, I nearly ran into Williams when I first arrived.

He had just finished up one scene when this dog decided to jump up on him.

Then he grabbed a french fry from these guys and headed back to his trailer.

A little later, he emerged with his game face on for the next scene.

He sat inside this old car on a trailer, rigged with multiple cameras. The weather, appropriately Seattle. That’s about the time the executive producer asked me (nicely) to put away the camera or leave.

Also on set, Daryl Sabara, who plays Williams’ son.

Film crews also shot out front of a house on 64th Street. Trailers lined 34th Ave for two blocks. Neighbors walked by and observed all the action.

These enterprising neighbor kids were selling snacks and drinks for the crew.

Williams is in his 14th day of a 25 day shoot in Seattle for the upcoming movie, The World’s Greatest Dad. Crews have been in Wallingford until today, when they moved to Sunset Hill for a single day of shooting — the first extended shoot outdoors. We’re told tomorrow they’re headed to Green Lake, and then later to the Alexis Hotel. (All photos copyright My Ballard.)

    Whenever i start a video call/ web cam/voice call on live messenger, skype, google talk, yahoo messenger, my computer totally freezes, and gives an echo. I have to restart it manually. Sometimes it comes with a blue screen, and it restarts itself.. I am using Vista, and this situation existed when i had XP on this computer. What is wrong? Hardware problems? There is no virus detected after i scanned the computer with Kaspersky..

    I’m in high school and starting next year I will have to start looking at colleges. I know I want to find a college just for creative writing. I love writing stories of all sorts, and I know of a couple colleges that specialize in creative writing. But where would you recommend? Remember, I’m talking about creative writing, not journalism. Any suggestions?.

    I have a wordpress blog and I would like to remove everything (it’s hosted on my own domain and hosting) because I would like to delete my site. How can I save my blog posts in a folder or something in my documents (offline) because I don’t want to delete everything completely. Can I do that in one go, if I can even do it ? Thank you !.
