a coincidence

When I was in university, I studied fine art photography. For my 1st year final project, I had a friend dress as a cowboy. We took various photos of him throughout town but the best photo by far was the final one in which he is lying dead across the train tracks with his saddle laying beside him. I gave him a copy of this photo.

a few years later, he was driving back from promoting a rave and he and his nephew decided to check out an old abandoned railway and the trestles which were still there.

They hiked in and found a viewing spot 70 metres above the trestles - the problem was that they could not see everything. So... they stepped closer to the edge of the cliff and then Jon started slipping. His nephew tried to grab his hand but it was too late: John had fallen over the edge to his death.

He died like the cowboy in the picture.... His sister took that photo down before his mother saw it.

Sorry about your frined man, losing anyone isnt an easy thing. That is a very very crazy coincidence and can completely understand why his sister took that down. Just too strange man.

It's sad to lose a friend...and yes it is a little strange how things happen sometimes.
