Just one day earlier, I was photographing two Oscar winners, Colin Firth and Helen Mirren at the premiere of "Eye in the Sky", but today it was THREE Oscars on display (metaphorically speaking) and in the form of a single actress - Meryl Streep. The movie : Florence Foster Jenkins, the true story of one of the world's worst singers.. Justin Bieber. Oh, wait. My notes for this premiere might possibly be wrong. But until I figure it out... here's how it went down:
So, that was a relatively pleasant way to spend a few hours. The weather stayed clear, the crowd was well-behaved, and Meryl Streep didn't make anybody feel too inadequate about how little they'd accomplished in any of their chosen fields, whether it be photography, roof tiling or even just queueing for free premiere wristbands.
And tomorrow, for the third day in a row, at the third different VENUE in a row... I'll get to do it all over again. (Woo!). For now, I'll be content to get a decent night's sleep, and put another journal into The Archive of Movie premieres, now containing the links to over 350 premieres and events I've photographed, and try to remember to pick up my camera whose battery is charging at the moment.
Until next time!
