November 23rd, 2014.
It was cold and it was raining on this particular Sunday but I figured it might be worth coming in for this premiere and sacrificing a rare weekend day otherwise doing nothing.
And although I'd somehow managed to misplace or lose my copy of the photo I've been waiting since 2008 to get signed by Nicole Kidman.... I was there. With an umbrella. And a waterproof jacket. And two of the three cameras I brought with me would survive the journey.
Here's how it went down:
So.. that was that. Camera down, waterlogged me and an umbrella whose skills at keeping me dry range somewhere between "fly netting" and "why am I bothering". There's another premiere on Tuesday. I'll probably head to that too, if I can (not so much based on the awesomeness of this one, but based on a desire to atone for my relative underperformance at this one).
On the plus side, it's another entry for my "Archive of Movie Premieres" the last few of which included:
Horrible Bosses 2 : with Jennifer Aniston, Charlie Day and Olivie Wilde!
The Hunger Games Mockingjay1 : With J-Lawz, L-Hemz, J-Hutchz and E-Bankz!
Interstellar : with Anne Hathaway, Matthew McConaughey and Jessica Chastain!
Until next time!
Nikon update1 : apparently the 'r21' is not an error, it's the number of photos left on the buffer before it's full (thanks, Nikon twitter feed, also, okay, fine, my fault for not knowing that). But the 'fEE' error, which IS an error, more worryingly, relates to an issue with the lens and its aperture ring setting... an issue that did not seem to exist when I checked it. More news as the camera/lens dries, I guess...
Nikon update2 : Camera is fine, however the Lens is not. 50mm f1.8.... I shall miss thee.
