shots of the nightlife

I've been out once now to capture Plymouth's nightlife, especially the students binge drinking and acting without thought or control.  It's so strange for me, as I am usually in the same position as they are, but on Thursday I went out sober at half 12 at night.  I walked through the bus station, past a domineering alcohol pumped group of boys, up through town, past ride and stood for a while outside Firefly and Cuba.  It's right opposite the entrance for the students union, North Hill and the Burger van so I thought it would be a good spot to get some photography action.  The only problem with my idea, was that I was on my own so stuck out a little bit.  Also everytime I took a photo with flash, it caught everyones attention, then seeing my camera they all proceeded to want posed photographs...not what I wanted.  

I met with my housemate Liz, whom I'd given the disposable camera the same night.  She was pretty wrecked and got my best photographs of her that was the only one I thought worthy of playing with on photoshop...
Still doesn't show her being drunk enough so I am waiting for her disposable camera to be developed and then work from them.
Also theres a UV night at FireFly tomorrow night I'm getting a few friends to come with me too, giving them a disposable camera each as well as my own camera and video camera.  Should come out with some interesting results....but as I'm on a non-alcohol detox...again I'm going to be stone.cold.sober!
