Rob, one of our former volunteers (turned one of Moldova's hottest interior designers apparently) sent this picture of Boney M doing the sound check to me (the background info is here).



They were really bossing the sound guys around apparently. He wasn't there for the performance itself because he had to attend all the important parties in Chisinau and mingle with the Moldovan elite who are his potential clients. I get that but how do you miss this goodness (start from about 1:30, the beginning is a bit slow):



That guy owned all the cool moves in the book let alone the coolest cape.

But unfortunately time is ruthless to all of us and here is the guy in 2010 in France:



He lost some of his moves (not all though, see 1:30 again) but luckily his cape got even bigger. Most of the girls also dropped dead along the way (understandably) I think and he had to replace them. And then he died too, after a performance in Saint Petersburg in Russia and the girls replaced him with a young dude. The circle of life.

Thanks. It was not taken by me but with the same camera as mine. Rob liked my camera so much that he bought the same one for himself.

Yes, I saw it wasn't yours... But still it's very good! Rob did a great job in capturing it! :)

What camera do you have (I'm sure you said it already on one of your posts) I have a Canon EOS with Sigma Lents!

I use Sony RX-1. It is the smallest full frame camera and the only non-DSLR full frame I think (at least it was when I bought it).

But as phone cameras get better very fast I find myself using it less and less, the camera on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is doing a very decent job in most cases (most of the pics in my journal are taken with it).

Some of it sounds very familiar but I never was that much into music.

I remember that last song.  They play it on the radio here around Christmas time every year.
