Last week on Veronica Roth’s Tumblr, The Art of Notwriting, Veronica shared with us her feelings on the Ferris Wheel shot of Tris and Four during capture the flag. I know that I fan-girled HARD when this image was released. I can’t even imagine how surreal this must have been for Veronica to be on set!
Confession: I was on set when this was likely taken, and I may have gotten a little emotional that day (and now, while looking at this photo). This is the actual Ferris wheel on Navy Pier in Chicago. So not only is it beautiful and huge, and not only are Shailene and Theo wonderful as Tris and Four, but that wheel is the real deal, the real thing I was picturing as I wrote this scene, my senior year of college, in my messy apartment with the gray shag rug that always smelled like crackers.
So, this is kind of a special moment for me. You know. A little.
