So, I’ve just dropped the GF off at work and as I’m heading home I find this disused garage. The doors are broken and I take a look inside the old workshop. Hmmm nothing here but an old busted up arcade game with its chair… so I grab my trusty camera and my monopod and set the chair up in the middle of the workshop. Now apart from the hole in the roof and the light from the door its dark in here, so I set the timer on the camera to 20 secs so as to avoid any camera shake. I took a few pics and then thought I’d have a smoke and a think about what else I could do with this place. So I switched the camera off (or so I thought, I’d actually pressed the shutter button instead) and sat down to think about the hole in the roof and the light coming through it… Click went the camera. So here’s the result… Me trespassing and smoking a cigarette in somebody’s workplace. Either way you look at it I’m now a criminal an I’m just waiting for the knock at the door!

    What a wonderful accident!

  • Yes, usually I manage to get a photo of my left foot or something equally daft, but this one was just way too good to delete!
