Friday fun: a tribute to the future patron saint of black and white photography

by Stefan Fletcher June. 26, 2009 5220 views

In Greek it says “Michael Jackson is dead!”. Captured with my iPhone on the way home. Globalisation is a wonderful thing, right?

Anyone who can span the colour divide - literally - deserves a tribute, even if the music was only, well, acceptable.

Post scriptum after the first six comments:

I never liked Jackson's work; it's Friday and I'm being tongue-in-cheek (as usual, but perhaps inappropriately considering that one shouldn't speak ill of the dead) and what I found much more interesting than his demise was the fact that grafitti appeared in a rough part of Athens hours after said person had died in Los Angeles. It's the sort of thing only the Masked Quiche in Cheddar Gorge [] would stoop to.

BTW, what's happened to Cheddar Gorge. No one interested any more?

I guess it says something about where you are that people would write graffiti about it. Nothing like that here. In the UK (as I expect you know) a famous death is an excuse for morbid jokes to start doing the rounds. With someone as notorious as MJ my mobile hasn't stopped buzzing all day.

I was a huge fan of Michael Jackson as a kid--a bit weird person but I still feel a little sad partly for his sudden demise and partly for his huge fans waiting eagerly for his July concert. This is a good one!!

Was never a big fan of Michael, but have to give him credit. His talent took him to the top of the music world "acceptable" though it was ;) Guy was strange and a bit sad, yes, but millions have enjoyed his efforts.

How topical and typical of you Stefan. I liked his music when I was young (er) and it still stands the test as good pop. Sad, sad life, though.
