i took this after watching the latest bill hicks movie. i only got into bill after his death, so i never had a chance to see him live. i think watching that film in a sold out cinema is probably the closest i'll come to that experience. the movie wasn't flawless it was great to laugh along at both old and new (to me) material. the man is a legend, and it was one of the few movies i've seen followed by a round of applause, and one of the fewer where i've joined in with that applause. since i had my camera with me i decided to take this shot on my way home, which from my eyes was just a regular long exposure shot of streets in the distance. after the 30 seconds had elapsed and i reviewed the result i was surprised to see colourful lights dotting the sky. i looked up again, and just saw dark ahead of me, so i took another shot, and got the same colourful result. now i'm sure my left-brain could come up with some unexciting explanation as to how these lights appeared in the sky - but after seeing bill hicks eulogise about his mind expanding experiences with psilocybin mushrooms i prefer to listen to my right-brain.
