Got this album the day Bowie died and understandably out is heavily influenced by his terminal illness. The song Blackstar itself and the film clip that comes with the album is simply amazing and will be the song that will remind me of him.

I was in the city when this challenge was announced at 1600hr local time. I knew that this is the song I wanted to shoot for and so shot the skyline with the sun. I originally thought of just changing to a negative image but felt that this was better. My family love Bowie's music and movies and are thankful for being alive during his time.
