Sleepwalking

    Newer Older

    I`ve only walked in my sleep on one occasion I know of back in 1992.A really stressful time ,when I was in my first few weeks at college,new unfamiliar surroundings,a local council threatening to take me to court for non payment of poll tax-when I had paid up already,and my Gran in hospital.
    I woke up walking alongside the main road out of town,barefoot and just in the jogging bottoms and t-shirt I`d gone to bed in-great huh!I think my unconcious mind was trying to escape.Damn embarassing too,and why I`m telling you guys this,when no one else knows is anyones guess! :)

      Awesome shot Kit--the lighting behind you is amazing! Fan-f***ing-tastic photo!!! Brilliant! By the way, may I have a small sample of your DNA--I'd like my future child to possess your creative genius. :-D (Kidding, just kidding. I'll have Fanboy snag your hair brush and send it airmail).

      @ Cat:Hiya! Thankyou! This was the first one I did last night and I set off a neighbours security light-hence my motion blur! I only hung about long enough to take 5 shots after that! It was really misty which worked really well!
      Haha!Fanboy lives over 200 miles away so I`d have to snag a few hairs myself! You could clone me!! :D
      @Estherase: A fact I`m very greatful for!! :D

      @drBenMonkey: Cheers! Sodium lights are cool! Even if it does mean I can`t use my telescope over half the night sky!
      @Addadada: Thanks! Hehe! I`m so glad I didnt sleep in the nude!!That would have been a scarey pic!
      @Hep-cat: Cheers mate!The mist and damp roads meant everything was shimmering with light! I wish I`d taken more shots now,but hey out of doors at 2 am in the morning and barefoot in January-I didn`t want my neighbours to think Iany more barmy than I usually am! Weird though it wasn`t a cold night at all.

      I just LOVE this shot. The lighting, and the blur, and I can just FEEL the damp pavement under your feet.

      I like it a lot - it captures the feeling very well.

      I find it amusing that it's embarassing to sleepwalk out in your pyjamas... but to do it for a self portrait's ok ;o
