Was watching "A Clockwork Orange" by Stanley Kubrick the other day (again), and the idea of for this came to me. Very off-the-wall and weird, but I guess part of that appeals to me more than the conventional. Aware that global appeal for this will be minimal and this will tank badly.

If I can get 6+, I will be well surprised!

- longish shutter sync speed to collect some ambient light too.

Sigh. See this one tanked quite a bit. Bummer, I thought it was pretty neat. Guess it was too icky or not executed well enough.
