Behind the Lens: Wish I Was Here

Hey Photobucketeers!

I’m Rachel, a fellow Photobucketeer, and I’d like to invite you to read my series on our blog called “Behind the Lens”. Each month I will take you on my journey highlighting some of the best eats, drinks and things to do in and around Colorado, all the while experiencing and discovering the awesome features our site and mobile app have to offer.

This weekend I treated myself to a solo movie date Sunday afternoon at my favorite indie theatre, the Esquire Theatre in Denver. I’ve been dying to see Wish I Was Here since I saw the movie trailer for it months ago. I mean, who can go wrong with that cast?! Zach Braff. Kate Hudson. Josh Gad. The list goes on, including many surprise cameos that I found delightful. Zach Braff has been an all-time fave of mine since 2004’s Garden State and kept my attention with 2006’s Last Kiss. Kate Hudson is GORGEOUS, so watching her on the big screen for two hours wasn’t hard. She’s been a fave of mine as well with flicks like How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and You, Me, & Dupree.

Wish I Was Here was another classic Zach Braff movie in script and feel, like only he can do so well. Much of that I attribute to him having his hand in almost every aspect of the film. He was producer, actor, director and co-writer with older brother, Adam. Taking place in LA, the movie follows the Bloom family, Aidan (Braff), Sarah (Hudson), and their two kids, Grace and Tucker. When life events change the family’s financial situation, Aidan, a struggling actor, elects to homeschool his children. Unconventional “lessons” are given while the three try to figure out life, their purpose in it and their faith. Wish I Was Here is a bizarrely beautiful film about faith and family. “Life is an occasion. Rise to it.”


A pretty nifty GIF I made using the Photobucket GIF Maker!

A big “Thank You” to all who participated in our #wishiwasheresweeps contest!

My #wishiwasheresweeps entry was from 2007: my first Christmas in NYC. For a holiday fanatic like myself, NYC is a city who does holidays on steroids and boasts THE Christmas Tree:

Don’t worry; I’m not eligible to win 😉 I’m pulling for one of you!

Stay tuned for future posts of “Behind the Lens”!

    Great concept, idea and presentation to show the unique qualities of Colorado. The abilities of the GIF maker are functionable and useful in the venture you have undertaken. Quick and excessible to the shot needed. The concept of the blog is what is what is interesting, creative and insightful for me. I look forward to following this blog.
