It was less than a week ago that I did my first premier (and it's been barely a week since I got back from Australia) but here we are again in Leicester Square, with the temperature hovering around freezing point and Johnny Depp expected. Which in this case was notable as just this once I actually had something I really wanted to get signed : a photo I'd taken of Mr Depp back at the premiere of "Public Enemies" back in 2009.
Here's how it went down.
So... that was a rather fun premiere.
Or rather, it would have been, had my hallowed 70-200mm f2.8 Tamron for my Pentax not born the brunt of a 50cm fall onto concrete caused by the strap of my camera not breaking but literally FALLING OFF. To give you an idea of how unlikely this is, that's like losing a key off a keyring by having it fall OFF THE KEYRING. Broadly speaking, so unlikely as to constitute a freak of nature or an act of God.
But, to plagiarise the late Douglas Adams.... which God? And why? (And can I get (say) the Pope or Buddha or Zeus or Chuck Norris to spring for a new lens? Because I NEED that lens).
Until next time, and/or until I figure out what to do next... at least it's another one for "The Archive of Movie Premieres"
