Amy Winehouse

  It was sad to learn of Amy Winehouse’s death over the weekend.  While on honeymoon in St. Lucia in May 2009, I snapped these photos of her on a secluded beach, before my wife and I chatted with her at the otherwise empty beach bar.  Wearing her trademark pink ballet slippers, she told us she was between recording sessions at her studio a short walk away.  She suggested we try her favourite ice cream shop nearby, and pointed out her boyfriend, who was on horseback at the edge of the surf.  She politely declined our request for a photo with her, due to a nasty black eye, but she was very friendly.  Another musical talent gone too soon!
