Katie Holmes played her hand at being a photographer yesterday when she took a snap of a couple riding a Vespa in NYC. The actress paused to take a picture of the scooter-riding duo while out for a walk with a female friend. Katie is taking it easy in the Big Apple while she prepares to start work on the upcoming film adaptation of The Giver. Katie and the cast, which includes Meryl Streep, Alexander Skarsgard, and Taylor Swift, will start shooting on Oct. 7 in Cape Town, South Africa. Katie is already getting pumped about the new role, saying that she's "excited" to be working with Oscar winner Meryl. Since Suri Cruise is currently enrolled in school in NYC, it isn't clear if she'll be accompanying her mom on her trip to Africa.
