TCM Festival 2016 Wrapped up In a Gallery of Photos

A simple posting today of a few pics I attempted to to take while making my first journey to both the TCM Fest and Hollywood as well.

Take a couple of quick turns from my hotel room, look up towards the hills and there it was…….

Ben Mankiewicz kindly stopping for a photo opportunity with this humble film fan. Dig that photo bomb guy right between our heads! Where’s his Waldo hat?

Since I’m not the best with a camera in my hand I guess I’ll just have to cross my fingers I make the journey to next year’s 2017 festival to re-shoot all the blurred images I brought home.

I wasn’t fooling……. full apologies extended to the unfortunate individual on stage who shall remain anonymous.

    • Oh No! Cats out of the bag. I hope Ileana doesn’t see this. She may veto any chance I have for a media credential next year. Were you sitting next to me at this showing? Elbowed me as I snapped the shot? 🙂

  1. Yup same here, I was going to guess Illeana because the dress and because I have many similarly blurry pix! Love how the Egyptian looks too. Nice gallery!

      • Hmmm. You both know I’m an *unlicensed* surgeon, right? “Synthetic flesssssh…” I can sew you two together so there’s at least ONE steady hand at work (says the guy who got far worse photos at one trade show recently and tried to blame the cold weather affecting the camera, lol)… 😀

          • That is true. I’ll make sure to give her the better stitching job… something in a floral pattern, I guess. Or wait, You’ll be the one who loses *your* head (temporarily). No one will mind a lady carrying around a head in a bowling bag with a bunch of tubes and an air supply attached. If it’s a guy, you get all sorts of questions from the TSA and other guys asking what’s in that contraption you’re deftly trying to hide. 😀
