This photo is from the video China Girl. China Girl was filmed in 1983 in Sydney’s Chinatown district. Geeling Ng is the beautiful woman who starred in the video. The song was written by Iggy Pop and David Bowie in 1977. China Girl is one of my favorite songs.

Remember these posters by Shepard Fairey? They were so appealing and fun to make. They were a huge trend. I did have hope and thought Obama made progress. I am grateful.

Iman posted this to her Instagram account on January 10, the one-year anniversary of David Bowie’s passing. What a fantastic double rainbow shot, and love the dramatic lighting. Good capture. Wonder if she shot it herself, from the balcony of where they live in Soho? It’s a feel-good, hopeful photo.
Somebody Up There Likes Me lyrics by David Bowie
He’s so divine, his soul shines.
Breaks the night, sleep tight.
His ever loving face smiles on the whole human race.
He says, “I’m somebody.”
He’s got his eye on your soul, his hand on your heart.
Somebody up there (somebody) likes me.
Nothing left his eye unmoved. He
Had the plan, he had to use (somebody).
He’s so divine, his soul shines (somebody).
Breaks the night, sleep tight (somebody out there, somebody).
His ever loving face smiles on the whole human race (somebody, somebody, somebody, somebody out there).
“I usually don’t agree with what I say very much.” — David Bowie
I miss you.
