Our Street As A Line Drawing

The other day, we were checking out the opening credits for the film Juno (which are great) and suddenly recognised our street – drawn in detail right down to one of our neighbour’s cars and the no parking signs on his fence.

Here’s one of the photos I took from our kitchen window of the filming that happened back in March.

We felt sorry for the crew who had to make the street look like fall by tying bunches of leaves onto the bare branches while it poured with rain. The day of shooting was dry, but the next day poured again while they undid all the trees and swept up the leaves they’d scattered on the road. In the background, behind all the fake fall foliage, the fruit trees were in full bloom.
