So this was part of the test we (with +Alex Ortega and +John Butterill ) did with +Virtual Photo Walks™  last Friday.

I reached at about 5.15pm and there were already photographers set up their tripods. The show started at 9.30pm, so it was a lot of standing.

Good thing I met some fans, friends, photographers and photography enthusiasts (and troll too)! That helped a lot, the waiting was a lot less miserable.

Besides the amazing performances by Starlight Alchemy, the test went well too, this Friday would be the walkabout for VPW!

Dying is inevitable and it's a topic that's attracting lots of interest in healthcare circles, particularly palliative care.
