While I was visiting the childhood home of Michael Jackson [1] we had a surprise visit from his father Joe Jackson [2].  He arrived with quite the entourage and security provided courtesy of the Indian State Police dressed in plain clothes.

After a short while observing him, Jez Coulson [3] and I had the chance to make some photographs of him for a few minuets.  This was one of the few pictures I captured.  He really didn't want anyone taking photos of him, and it seemed he was worried a photo of him might be attached to an article of him that he did not want.  So we were quite lucky to capture a few photos of him.

    I see Delta has put WiFi now on some of their planes.. Last time I was flying on AirTran and I loved having WiFi on the flight. Made it go by much quicker. Say hey to Matt and have a good time with the shoot and him.

    Cheers!

    Joe only gave us a very short time to take photographs of him and then he walked away.. Even when he did let us he was showing almost no emotion, as if he didn’t want us to get any good photos. I managed to get lucky and capture this one.

    Thanks for the comment Quinn!
