Before you even ask, no I did not photograph Beyonce at this premiere. She arrived after the Royals did, and as far as I can tell she never posed for a single outdoor paparazzi let alone set foot in the centre part of Leicester Square where all of what I’ll loosely call ‘The Fans’ were. But fair enough, maybe she was running late, the Limo got lost, or she didn’t want to upstage actual royalty by overshading them at her movie’s premiere. And Elton John didn’t go into the centre part of the Square either, and somehow I missed Vin Diesel. Other than that, though, here’s how it went down:
So… that was that. I briefly headed over to the Odeon Cinema ‘edge’ to see if I could potentially photograph Beyonce or any of the other guests if they left the screening early, ultimately we were told we had to make room for trucks that were coming to help dismantle the whole setup.
And that’s how I spent my Sunday. Worth it? Don’t ask me - ask the Russian bots that faithfully follow this site, giving it a large percentage of my total views, and the 1/4 of all my twitter followers who seemingly followed me to publicise their Indonesian political views, which I’m not familiar enough with to describe (or confident at drawing the connection to my premiere photography…..).
Until next time? Sure, why not.
