Who doesn't love to see Bono and his trademark organge tinted glasses.
Last night Bono recieved another award for his humanitarian work from the "Keep The Child Alive" organization headed by Iman and Alycia Keyes
Bono poses on the carpet with
model and Tsunumi survivor, Model Petra Nemcova, Bono his wife Ali Hewsonand Alycia Keys and a few friends. I love the Bono pose here
Kids are so impressionable
Ok how many of my readers would like to be blindfolded by Bono
When shooting Bono I only have one person in mind, my friend Diane, who last year waited on her lunch hour 4 hours for a Bono sighting, and then ignored my advice on how to see and get a photograph with Bono at his wifes fashion show when no one else would be around. She has a limit, no waiting in dark allys in NYC at midnight.
To get this Bono headshot, I mistakedly and dumbly missed lots of good smiling action with the Trio, "The Three Shot", which would have been marketable. A Bono headshot with Alycia Keys hand on his shoulder is not marketable!!!
Bono looking down, not marketable
Bono looking at me smiling, marketable, sadly too difficult to cut out c0-founder of "Keep Child Alive" Leigh Blake who is not the same height as the rest of the folks in the picture. Might have made a difference if I shot it head on. But sometimes these set up shots, never make it to one end of the carpet or the other for those dead on shots. And there were other people there..
A Bowie and Iman
On cue Russel Simmons and girlfriend shut their eyes
Sheryl Crow doing her best Stevie Nicks impression
I thought John Denver was dead
And Gwen. After styling it all week, all over town in NYC, she shows up on the Red Carpet in this ugly thing, with that ugly hair. None the less I sent all my good shots out and gave you guys this ugly, white balance, over exposed shot because that's pretty much how I felt she looked last night...
