Very, Very Drunk 19th April 2006

Last night I went out for several drinks on London Road. The walk home from there is about one or two miles, and this morning I discovered that I had semi-consciously taken almost 200 photos as I stumbled back uphill. I remember very little about taking them (I was, you see, very, very drunk). However they were all taken with "open flash" (i.e. a long exposure of around 1 second, during which time the flash fired for 1/125 of a second).

One thing I do remember is that I was fascinated by the possibility of blowing a cloud of spit into the air and then instantaneously catching it in the camera's flashlight. Hmmm.
