I met Andreas Schnell thru the woopra chat on this blog the other day, and he pointed me to several really cool movies – and this one called “Strange Fruit” just grabbed me and held on – especially since it is a Canon EOS 5D Mark II (reviews) video and has a behind the scenes (bts) video to go with it.

      Nope, did not know what it was about, now I know: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strange_Fruit

      Thanks for pointing that out.

      Now that I know more, it makes me appreciate the song and the rendition. It wasn’t a good time for America and it is sad to know that there is still racism around the world.
