    The day before yesterday. I checked the lads on a job they were on in town., and after i had a walk round to see if i could find one of the drunks in town asleep for this months theme. I checked china town out but nothing doing, checked the cathedral grounds out but all i saw was an empty wine bottle :rolleyes: So got some nice shots of the blossom trees ect :rolleyes:


    So i thought i'd jump on the train one stop just across the city centre and see if i could find eddie punch clock kipping on the train.....

    Perfect!! This guy catching flies :smashin: I only had one shot at it and at 1/8 sec it's always going come out blurred when i was trying to take it so fast before he saw me :rolleyes: :oops:

    Had the same idea when i was in town last week, got some nice stuff but none that i could get permission to use. Got loads of my 5month old sleeping but there are pleny of those already in this months comp, so now thinking of going the still life route instead.

    That's spooky guys, I also had the same idea. There's a woman a few miles away from where I live sleeping rough. I've never entered the composition before, but thought I would have a go. Trouble is she sleeps on the edge of a busy road so it isn't the easiest shot to take.
