Surprise photos

Wednesday, March 12, 2003 5:42 AM
You know that when you buy a ticket to a park or a season pass, you agree to be photographed, and the park can use those photographs as they see fit.

So, has anyone ever opened a park brochure and seen their smiling face, or seen themselves on a TV commercial unawares? Or, in the same vein, have you ever been surprised to see yourself coincidentally in a photo taken by another enthusiast?

Personally, I haven't, but I think about it every time I see close-ups of people in photos at parks.

Valleyfair was very upfront with us during a photo shoot. They were taking pictures of the kids on the Mild Thing and before my son rode the ride I had to fill out a waiver form. They used those photos for the following years brochure and post cards, it was nice to see his smiling face! A few years ago I went to SFMM and when I went to get in line for RR I had to wait because they were filming a Toys For Tots commercial. I don't live in the area but my friend called to say she saw me in the commercial. They did warn me if I stood where I was I would probably be in the spot. So I do think they try there best to give you the option of not being photographed.

It's never happened to me in a brochure, but they asked for our on-ride photo to put on display once.

The only times that I've seen myself have been when I was there specificly for a photo shoot. I've also seen parks post signs indicating that they will be shooting in a specific area of the park that day and that by entering that area you are granting them the right to use your picture.

A friend of mine one day says to me "Hey, I saw this big Wonderland poster the other day, and you were in it!"

I finally found the poster (in my own school no less), and sure enough, there's a big picture of me with two of my female coworkers (it's a recruitment poster for people who might want to work there). Apparently it's all over the place, in hockey arenas, at all the high schools, etc.

I might be a little yellow blob in an SFEG commercial, I was around when that god awful helicopter was flying around the park, it got real close to some of the rides. We had to try to make all of the rides in the shot run at the same time.

I'm just glad they snapped the pic of chris eliminating the Schlitz, rather than the one we have of him *consuming* it (Press Corner)....when he was drinking, the funnel kept blocking the camera's view of his face...;)

edit: ROFL, Bass....am I the only one wondering how come the cow has *obvious* nipples...and it's the KIDS corner...Europeans are TOO kewl!!!111!!!

Before it comes up (and it *would...I know yous guys)....I'm taking the seagull character that seems remarkably familiar (An American Tale?). DIBS! The fish was a decent choice until I noticed he has a split tail....must've grown up near Globocide, or the Springfield Nuclear Plant...;). With 'Moosh and dawn having the cow and the hippo, and chris having the ant character (courtesy of Schlitz breweries), only the beaver and the fish are left...

Mike and Rob will have to figure it out, but my *thinking* is that Oregon St. is a lot closer to Rob...;). The CPG, it's more than just an adventure, it's a job in itself....:)

Well, since almost everyone pronounces my nickname (bASS) like the fish instead of like the guitar (or the control on their stereo), I guess I'm the fish.

And Gator, the seagull is really appropriate for you...everytime I log on to CB, a quick scan of the latest posts always confirms "Gator's been here, throwin' his poo around again".

poo flingin's not JUST for primates, ya know...;)

Better swim carefully Bass, reptiles eat fishies...;). I *do* find it funny though that someone could see that name and think of fishing...well maybe Brent (he of Nascar fame). Gotta tease Brent, he's just so *easy*...;)

But back on topic, if I see one more photoshop of Jacko dangling that kid over coaster tracks, I'm gonna *Scream*...(use of the name "Scream" without permission of SFI)...hope I don't get sued...;)
