It's good to see peoples views and methods of photography change. It reminds me of the thread where the OP refuses to keep "snapshots" and things as such. I used to be the same way, but as you meet new people and experience new things, the new life experiences have a huge impact on how you view your photography.

My thoughts go out to all the families involved. As much of a tragedy as this is, it's interesting to see your thoughts about your photography and your workflow change as life takes its course. I've been following your photography for a while David, and it really has been an inspiration for somebody who is starting out like me.

@the OP: my thoughts also go to your friend.
And IMHO, that's a lovely shot, perhaps in part, because it's not sharp!

And, at all you guys talking about drunk-driving, here in Japan, any passengers in the car, or friends (at the bar/party where the driver became drunk) and even staff who knew that someone was about to drive while "drunk" (which equals only about two shots of liquor!) can be, and often are prosecuted, for knowingly allowing a criminal act to take place!

Yep....things can be VERY strict here!
Quite rightly.

Regards,
Simon

A little OT but... are you legally allowed to have an open container as a passenger? Or were we just being very naughty? XD

Edit: The lack of sharpness gives a dreamy look. It's like depriving the image of the clarity slider!

This.

If you get a DUI, I'm of the opinion that you should have mandatory jail time and should never, EVER be able to drive again. Period. We are too lenient on these people. There was someone here who was killed by some guy with 4 DUI's. FOUR! What was this person doing free on the streets?

You'd hate Wisconsin then. Its about every week theres someone in the paper police blotter with their 4th, 6th, 10th or 14th. Takes getting a 4th (within 5yrs of the last one) to even be considered a felony. Jail time dealt out is hardly ever harsh.

1 dui is a mistake. One should LEARN from that to NEVER do it again. SHoudl spend some time behind bars. Shoudl not be able to drive for a while. After 2 or 3 no driving for life. Cant register anyting with a motor, no driving or operating boats, atv's, scooters period. Only thing they should be allowed to operate is a lawn mower. Caught driving drunk again after that, the vehicle is crushed. No ands ifs or buts.

Thanks everyone for your kind words, all prayers are forwarded to her.

I'm glad you like the shot, I agree that the out of focus face gives a dreamy look, which kind of fits here.
