Not a bad photo for being asleep!

A couple nights ago I shot my first ever photo while sleepwalking! I am a notorious sleepwalker and sleeptalker... Just ask Bethany, she has TONS of stories! :)

Anyway I fell asleep on the couch late at night, and had a dream that because Christmas was over, the police were going door to door demanding that all Christmas lights be taken down. Our festive lights in the living room were on (which I really like) so I thought I'd take a photo to remember them while they were still up. So I did, all while sleepwalking!

I didn't think anything of it until the next day when I saw the photos on my camera, and I remembered it all.
When I sleepwalk, I usually am conscious and can think, hold conversations, etc, but I am still totally not awake because I make no sense at all. Then I'll go to bed, wake up in the morning and not think anything of it until I see a reminder of what I did. In the past I've done things like stuff all the blankets in a closet, put a clean towel outside the bathroom for Tom Cruise (who I thought was using my shower), move kitchen appliances into the bedroom and bedroom stuff into the kitchen, relocated lamps, vases, cardboard pizza boxes, flashlights, laundry baskets, pillows, and lots more.

So here is my first ever sleepwalking photo, I hope there is more to come!

Thats so funny! I took two rolls of 36 exposures on new years and don't remember taking them but thats different, and they were all awful photos.

the fact that you can properly compose and shoot, all while sleep walking astounds me.. please tell me this was shot from something other than say.. your 5d in manual mode... please, please!?

Hahh! That is sooo funny! I'm not a huge sleepwalker, but have definitely done many of the same things. My wife, Kim, has a super funny story in college where I was sleepwalking dreaming about riding a Harley and proceeded to tell her all about it and invite her to shot, btw..
