Queen Latifah


CelebriGum crisis!

SUV pulls up.  Turn on the camera.  Screen goes black, flashes message: "Replace battery pack."  I always have the spare battery in my pocket… except just this once I don't.

Time for some old school CelebriGumming with the cell phone. 


It doesn't freeze action well, but it got a decent on-the-fly shot.



By the time Queen Latifah left, I'd replaced the battery.


I like the shadow in this one.



And this one's not bad, with her gesture, the fans, the… 

Oh, my camera's flashing another message: "Replace photographer."

Seems a little harsh.

  1. I like the way the old cell phone camera has equalized the depth of field. The window sill looks like it's part of the sidewalk. Queen Latifah better watch where she's going or she'll trip over the gum.

    1. Though the "real" camera is better in most ways, I do miss the sharpness of the gum that the cell phone could provide. Maybe my next camera upgrade will get me back to that...

    Thankfully, these are ALL great shots...or the Queen may have shouted, "Off with the photographer's head!"

    (Seriously, they are ALL great shots...well done!)

    1. Well, thanks. Modesty forces me to offer my own critique: Sort of okay, if you like that sort of thing.

      I guess you do.

  3. Those of us "old timers" enjoy "classic" celebrigum photos.

    BTW looks like you almost caught your own reflection on photo #3. Or maybe not.

    1. Yeah, there's something about the tone of that cell phone camera that feels very retro, if retro can encompass mid-2010.

      No, I don't think the SUV is getting any reflection from the second floor. The roof has upper floors of the building across the street.

    2. I challenge you to try to get your reflection someday. You could always send a hapless intern down to the street with a mirror.

  4. I was going to comment but then my brain said "replace battery pack".

    1. Battery replaced. Comment: The Queen's body guard should consider wearing a hat, doesn't he realize there's a photographer above him?
