Obviously as the producer of this competition, I cannot enter the contest, so please consider this a 'special entry'. I just needed a medium to post this rather precious piece of photography.


Dr. Leahcim Samaj, one of my local mentors, originally published it on Facebook last Sunday. I asked and he promptly granted me permission to share it with you and all my other site visitors.

Bob Marley by the way (not easily mistaken) is right in the middle and Michael Jackson is at his left - the 4th person to his left, behind the guy in the #31 shirt.

I understand that the photo was taken in 1975. Michael was here with the Jackson 5 for a concert.

Two tremendously inspirational men in the same place, at the same time. For me this photo is priceless. What do you think?

Bob an Michael
by: Ray

I love natural things.
I think Michael should have done a lot more visits to the hills of Jamaica in his life.
I could of given him even more inspiration.
Love it.
