By RAPjones
This one's straight from the camera apart from his tattoo.
I'm pleased with this shot from the Nice 'n' Sleazy punk festival because I feel this guy really sums up 'punk'... The 'flash ghosting' is deliberate: I think it adds to the feel of this kind of wild event...

many thanx Tammy & Source. I'm so pleased you appreciate my way of seeing things. I'm of the impression that my work is a bit outside the EPZ box or it's a bit crap... I feel like I'm in the creative doldrums at the mo...

Hey thanx Sully... I've actually shot at a Sham 69 gig too! I got far too close to the 'mosh pit' and ended with my cam and flash being hurled through the air. It was interesting how the persona of the 'recking crew' suddenly changed as they all scrambled to pick up my cam bits and batteries! Grin Then they got back to knocking the hell outa each other...
