September 3rd, 2013.
I've been to the GQ Man of the Year Awards twice before, first in 2011 and again in 2012, and the first one was definitely the best, as it was the only one where whining Paparazzi didn't force the expansion of pens to force fans into the inaccessible and less visible parts of the entry. Also, at that one I photographed Charlize Theron - direct eye-contact and (I like to think) even a beaming smile.
That aside, this year, like last year wasn't all bad. Here's sort of how it went down. Sorry for the brief comments - it's pretty late where I'm sitting.
So... that was certainly an experience. Sadly, the Nikon appears to have failed to survive a drop from waist-height perpetrated in a crowded environment. Kind of disappointing - I guess I'll have to get that looked at. The Pentax, needless to say, is fine.
Until next time,... and sure, why not, I'll put it into the "Archive of Movie Premieres"
