When Heath Ledger sadly died during the making of 'The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus', his role was divided into additional parts that were played by Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law. None of whom were at this premiere. And Verne Troyer I already photographed yesterday at Radio1, and model/actress Lily Cole I photographed today at Radio1 ... and as for Terry Gilliam? Well, let's just say Monty Python is yet to make me laugh.
So why was I in Leicester Square, you might I ask? Well, where else would I be but here, for my first full Leicester Square premiere in almost two months, reacquainting myself with my camera and 'The Square....
So, that was that. My first nighttime premiere since.. I can't even remember. The failure rate was staggering, the Pentax' autofocus was twitchy to the point where I switched to manual (and further raised the failure rate) but fortunately I got at least one recognisable shot of each of the 'majors'. And The Premiere Season is definitely upon us, with ten (10) big or small currently scheduled between now and the end of November.
Until next time!
