I can't actually remember when i shot this, it must've been 2002, thats when i shot a lot of stuff around Edinburgh. I was scanning this in at the time and dropped the slide on the floor without noticing. It got caught under wheel of my computer chair and ripped a little. I thought it looked cool and as it was already ruined, i took a lighter to it. I've always liked photos that are a little messed up, keeps it interesting.
