A summer’s night party…

But first…
Dulltown, Europe: Today’s random dictionary words are: gramarye, posteen, ethmoid, stylopodium, caudal, and pantopragmatic.
Please have these words looked up and placed in suitable sentences ready for Professor Mouldie first thing after breakfast tomorrow morning. Marks will be awarded for nicely rounded vowels.

EPSON scanner imageHere’s another picture from my days of old-style black and white film and darkroom photography. Yes, it was a summer’s night party I’d been invited to, and on the spur of the moment I decided to take my camera and a flash gun and snap a few pictures of the jolly revellers. I’m not very fond of using flash, but on this occasion I thought that it would suit the occasion; perhaps the pictures would look like those you see of hard lit embarrassed celebs in those glossy trashy magazines…
With a camera in one hand and can of Guinness in the other I wandered around thoroughly annoying people and flashing at them – well, not really… bad choice of words there…
Most of the pictures were alright I suppose – typical photos of people at a party, but I think this one is the best of the bunch. I really like the composition; everyone in it is doing something interesting, they all have a different looks on their faces and there is nice interplay of the directions they are all looking. The composition reminds me of some old classical painting, you know the sort of thing, one of those big ones glowing with heroes and leaf-clad maidens, nymphs, leering gods, and gesturing satyrs, etc. It could really have done with a couple of hovering cherubs up there in the top corners though…
