A short  flying visit produced 3 photos of Taylor Swift on a windy night including one ultra close up taken from the VIP Arrivals area where the screaming fans were. This was about 50 metres from the main red carpet staging area . The ultra close up shot was a mere 3 feet away……….. what is called in the trade a “within kissing distance” shot.
