artificial flowers, south shields market

A small tribute

Following the death of that strange but talented pop singer Michael Jackson, I offer this as my own tribute – black and white – it was the title of one of my favourites of his recent songs.

The picture is a close crop of some artificial flowers offered on a stall in South Shields Market Place captured in fairly flat light on yet another dull and overcast day, but I hear we may see some sunshine next week!

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 82 mm lens, 1/750 second, f8, iso 200

  1. I left South Shields in 1959. I keep looking back at various sites. I am still in shock at the untimely death of Michael Jackson. This photo of Black & White is so appropriate. Thanks to the photographer.
    I am now living in Sydney Australia, but always think of South Shields as HOME. Regards, Elizabeth Pickering, ( ne Peat ).

  2. I live in Illinois a state in the United States of America. I have placed your blog in my favorites. This image is perfect! What better way to say good-bye to Michael Jackson.

  3. All of the tributes I have seen–in words, on newly printed t-shirts, in photographs–this is the one I like the best.
