"Gone too soon" - Special MJ tribute post

Like A Comet
Blazing 'Cross The Evening Sky
Gone Too Soon

Like A Rainbow
Fading In The Twinkling Of An Eye
Gone Too Soon

Gone too soon by Michael Jackson (1958 - 2009)

As soon as I heard about it, I switched on the news and stared at it in shock. Once I was able to move again, I knew I had to do a tribute as my 365 pic.
I am not ashamed to admit it - I am a fan. Not so much in the last few years but when I was growing up, Jacko was a hero in our lives. I remember watching Moonwalker, I remember trying to emulate his dance moves, I remember singing along to his songs. I still sing along to his songs :) Rest in peace Jacko

Deer by sunlight

It is becoming increasingly difficult to get a nice sunny day in London these days. So we were very happy when one such rare day came upon a Sunday in April. We had wanted to go to Richmond Park for some time so we packed a picnic lunch and picked up Kia (our friend Savanthi's daughter) and headed out there. We went by car but the increase in number of vechicles on the road because of the sunny day and the numerous roadworks on the way, made the journey long, hot and tiring. But once we got to the park, it was a perfect day to laze around in the sunshine and watch the deer who had come out in numbers. I got to play around with my flashes with a couple of the models around :)

Lovely sunny day

Someone was flying a kite .... literally!

Graceful gliding

Photo Walk - UK South East POTN group

It has been awhile since our last blog entry - not due to the lack of activities but due to an excess of them. We have both been quite busy the last couple of months - Mich is very busy with a new project at work and I am keeping myself busy with my 365 photo project :) Hopefully, we should be able to get this back on track and keep updating regularly. 

There are several photography sites that I am a member of (very useful learning tools) and one of them is the POTN site. Some of the members from the South East (London and thereabouts) have a very lively, funny and interesting thread there. They regularly organise group photo walks and we were able to join them on the 19th of April to gander around Hyde Park. It was good to meet them and put faces to usernames from the forum .... and we got a few shots in as well :) 

Unfortunately, I don't follow that thread as much as I used to due to the above mentioned "busy-ness" but I do drop in from time to time for a laugh. 

Speakers corner was very funny - lots of interesting characters and lots of debate going on. 

One World .... and only he should be in it

Making a point 

This guy looked very interesting with the feather in his hair. Was dressed up like a gypsy and had a very intruiging smile.

Deformity in all its glory

And a non nature one :)
