Woah! I just had one of the coolest days ever!

I was home feeling sick, when I came across this Reddit thread about Doctor Who filming in Central Park. Now I don’t live all that far, so I sprang into action in time to catch all day filming at the Bow Bridge and the Bethesda Fountain!  How amazing is that!!?  I had a crazy time trying to find these places that I’ve only ever been to once, but my awesome facebook and twitter friends helped me out! All the behind the scenes people were really cool, as well as the many Doctor Who fans I encountered. Steven Moffat, Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill and Benjamin Cook were all there as well! (Mr. Cook even retweeted a tweet of mine {link} lol so that makes me famous, right..? haha)

Fun Stuff that Happened: Saw the reddit /r/doctorwho gang across the way and cheered at them with my sketchbook, two guys thought that Jay-Z was there and walked across the designated area right before shooting started in the area after the fountain, the Doctor is the new Keeanu with the Central Park Birds, Matt Smith gave Karen Gillan a sweet peck on the forehead while she was all teary (!!!), Several really nice French Tourists took amazing photos of the event, but had NO idea what it was and asked me (I guess I seem like I speak French? lol), and I explained to them what Doctor Who is.

Rumors I heard: there are angels, it’s the season finale, there is another day of filming yet.

So now here are all the pics I took:  Apologies for they are not 100% the best…  First they were at the Bow Bridge and then they were at the Bethesda Fountain.  CLICK ON MY FLICKR SET LINK for all my photos!
