Big Grin 11 years later I finally find again my favourite U2 pic of all time! I just love it!!

11 years ago, when The Fly video has first come out, I had immediately fallen in love with that scene. Back then, digital technology was not a fact for most so I had to use some of my imagination. I had recorded The Fly video with the VCR, I found my favourite scene, I pressed the Pause button and I took a picture of the screen with my Polaroid! That photo sat on my desk for a long time.

Now with digital technology all I had to do was download the video and do a screen capture. And here it is, my favourite U2 picture of all time, from The Fly video. It's the band playing, Bono looking at the cam in an amazing way, the camera being at a tilted position, and all this presented in bluish colors. I just love this picture.

Here it is, the new pic in my signature

Great picture indeed voxson Id go further saying that any scene from The Fly video is great. I love especially that quick close up on Edge and his green eyes. And also Bonos sly and mischevious smile towards the end of the video.

hey, youre from Greece uh? One of my dreams is to visit your country...before I died, cause Im stuck here, LOL

It was both the video and song of "The Fly" that got me into U2. I love the part where he's walking on top of the roof. Great video - reminds me of the "love is blindness" video.

We'd love to have you here! Yeah, I think you should visit us, too. You might love us or you might hate us, but your visit certainly will have an effect on you

No, actually I think you're gonna like it here

By the way, good luck to Brazil at the semi-final tomorrow!

If you really think about it, there are virtually ENDLESS pics to choose from. Even the most loyal fan with the greatest collection of pictures has not even seen half of the available pictures.

What's important though is that to understand that there are two categories of pictures. The classic ones, which have appeared in albums sleeves, official material, videos, or have been widely used as promotion material. These are widely known and it's fun talking about them since most of the fans have seen them.

And then there are unofficial photos or even official ones not widely used etc where there is a big chaos since they are so many and not well known. They are hard to talk about because not everybody knows about them. So, I just like to talk about the classic ones!
