It wasn’t a good start of the weekend. My street was full of signs like this one:
On Friday afternoon huge lorries started to park everywhere. Long traffic jams started to build up and I was wondering what was going on.
It dawned on me on Saturday morning when I understood that the latest James Bond movie, “Skyfall”, was literally being shot on my doorstep! How exciting!
Can you see? It says "Skyfall"
I was very impressed with the amount of preparation. Two huge buses were apparently being used as a canteen.
There were lots of cars on Millbank, red double-deckers and even black cabs being filmed. A couple of tourists thought that the red bus was a real one and tried to hop on, only to be told that the bus wasn’t going anywhere. It was simply hilarious.
This red bus will not take you anywhere!
I saw Dame Judi Dench (M) with Daniel Craig in a Bentley, and the best shot I managed to take was this one (I promised that they were inside).
Despite the biting cold, I spend a long time walking along the river and if you see someone with a beige coat walking down Millbank when the movie comes out in October, it is me!
James Bond is my favourite British institution. He is a man of few words, you see, and he gets the job done. What is not to love about him? In such instances, you have got to love London!
