When I was younger I used to wonder why it was that adults, especially after family meals, would just sit down and gently fall asleep in an arm-chair – it seemed like such a waste of time. Now I know better, and after three of four nights of our youngest two not sleeping all that well – one with a cold, one with an upset stomach – I can look back and apologise to all my older relatives for making fun of them as they quietly snoozed in their chairs ;-)

As for this shot: I'm not sure if my wife was asleep or not. In this instance, I suspect not, but if she wasn't I imagine that she may well have been wishing that she were.

As an aside: I was hoping to go out night shooting again but it seems as though it's monsoon season in Blackpool this evening. Hopefully tomorrow will be a bit brighter.
