Move over, Ms L!

Hi all, wondering why you are looking at this jumbled up page? This is due to the fact that Facebook didn't like our url since it starts with wog, so we have been forced to move the blog. This was some time ago, and we have placed a script which would automatically send you to our new location. Obviously, this hasn't worked for all of you, since we have just finished moderating some of your comments which appeared on this site recently, and not on our new (and improved!) site. So what we're saying is head on over to our new site, and update your bookmarks!

RIP Astrid, one amazing lady whose taste and art photography reverberated around the world with the advent of the Beatles.

Even after 43 years of trying I can't shoot anything close to how well she did at 19.

She was the one of the first photographers to take truly great photographs of the Beatles. More importantly, she always stood by them, never betraying the band, a la Peter Brown. I'm sure that she takes a lot of information to her grave.

Finally reunited with her dear Stu.
