Thanks for your words, I didn't mean it as a fan image at all (although I enjoy his music), but just as a concept/journalistic photo, so I am very glad to hear it actually works in that aspect :heart:

Fotografia chiar imi da o stare de calm de dupa furtuna si totodata acel sentiment trist de parca ti-ai fi pierdut un prieten. Foarte bine facuta :hug:

Can you tell us please - where was this photo taken? Why did people choose to light candles here? was michael ever here or was it a gig in memory of him? x

:icondianacretu:
DianaCretu Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
Yes, it was in front of a stadium in Bucharest where he played some good years ago. They organized the entrance a bit in his memory. There were pictures of him, flowers, candles, messages from people, and there were some speakers playing his music too.

You can see here a wider view on the place.

also i don't know if you saw the journal i wrote when i found out michael jackson had died, but that very day, i had been playing his music on my ipod whilst i was out working. so i was dancing along singing outloud when delivering the newspapers all day. when i got home someone said what did you do today? i said i was dancing and singing along with Michael Jackson! i don't know if i've ever said that before. and about 4 hours later the first reports came through he had died but it wasn't confirmed. i was utterly shocked. how could i have known that would be the last time i would sing along with Michael while we were still breathing together in the same world? i was in shock for some time, and now... i'm still unbearably sad. he was my childhood, my life, he was always there, and now my life and my childhood are slipping away like a shadow. the legend was only a man, but the man was a legend. michael will live forever in his music. x

I hadn't seen it, but I found it now and read it. Pretty strange story, and I'm sure you felt very weird that day...
I heard about the news pretty fast too, maybe 20-30 minutes after it had happened, it was not much past midnight here, and I was checking my friends' updates on Facebook, when I noticed someone saying about his death and offering a link to the news (not yet confirmed by BBC or CNN). Such a sad day for music.

But yes, he is indeed a legend, I'm pretty sure that his music will live on forever :heart:

yeah cos i posted that before it was actually confirmed, and updated the photos later. as i was delivering the papers yesterday i was listening to my jackson mp3s and hopping along, but it isn't the same, but one day it might be... x

oh that's so so sweet! there wasn't someplace like that here that i know of, but everyone's been singing songs in memory of him at the gigs. i cried when a couple people sang i'll be there at an acoustic gig the night of his memorial service. They've also pasted a massive photo of him up on the door of the jazz club with louis armstrong etc. i took a photo with my halina, when i get the film developed i might put it up. i miss him more than i ever thought i would. thanks for the photo darlin' :hug:
