The Drunk – an interesting story and a lesson why it is always a good thing to have a camera with you whenever you can.

I was sitting in the Jetty Bar at Glenelg having a drink and listening to live music with my wife when the drunk (his words) at the next table said, “Excuse me.  I am drunk. Can I ask you a question?”.  I said. “Sure.”  He asked, “Are you a photographer?”  I said, “No.  But it is my hobby.”  He said,  “Would you take my photo?”  As luck had it, I had the right camera and lens to take a suitable photo in a dark bar.  I said, “No problem” and he struck a nice pose.  He was most polite.  I have yet to see him again so that I can give him a print.
