Images taken in the streets outside the Staples Center during the 'Michael Jackson Memorial Service' in LA on July 7, 2009.
This is the first batch of images that I shot from Michael Jackson's Memorial Service at the Staples Center. I was not able to get tickets, but was not disappointed by the turn-out in the streets. All around the Staples Center people were dancing, laughing, singing, cheering, crying, and hugging. The King of pop is dead and people showed up to celebrate his life, with or without tickets.
