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.
