(FLASHBACK) : The 'Fast & Furious' 10th Anniversary RedCarpetMonochrome

Much as I did for “Watchmen (2009)” I felt that the 10th Anniversary of the premiere of “Fast & Furious” deserved a re-edit. Ten year old camera equipment and a lot less experience means I’m struck by a combination of (a) how close I came to taking okay photos, and (b) how much better I’d take those photos today, and (c) how glad I am that I took those photos when I did. Sadly, I never got another chance to photograph Paul Walker, as I wasn’t in the country for the premiere of the 5th Instalment, and I believe the 6th an 7th didn’t have premieres in London (and neither did the 8th, but I was in Berlin at the time).

Anyway, here’s how it looked like ten years ago, when I couldn’t even get onto the carpet:

So… that was (at the time) that. From where I sit ten years later, I think the 5th one is still my favourite, I’m not sure about whether I have faith in the supposedly final 9th and 10th ones… but I can’t deny the fact that the Hobbes & Shaw spinoff could be kind of great.

Until….?
