Street portrait?

This was taken on a walking tour of the East End of London, looking for street art. I was struck by how similar the face looked to the guy on the bench. The artist goes under the ‘tag’ of C215, which you can see bottom left of the shot. More of his work can be seen online.

Bucharest; I thought she was more interesting that whatever text he was getting.

Berlin food

Taken in the market that was hit by the truck; this was taken about 10 days before the incident and this stall was very close to the point where the lorry exited the market and went back onto the road. He’s giving a thumbs up for the sausages.

Black & Blue

The “Black & Blue” is a coffee shop/restaurant close to Borough Market. Part of it is in the arches underneath the railway. This shot was taken while the sun was coming in and showing up the texture of the bricks in one of the arches.

We had finished our trip on the Flying Scotsman at about 11:00pm in Victoria Station. With such a crowd I went to one of the other platforms to get a shot of the engine and rolling stock.

In a London cafe

Taken in Burberry’s cafe in London. She was sat at the next table and I liked the light on her face so I put the X100 on the table and took a sneaky shot. That’s when the X100 silent shutter comes into its own.

Street talk

Taken in London. I know that there is a feeling that you should ask to take pictures in the streets, mostly I disagree. This is one of those situations where the whole point of the photo – the way they stood while talking – would have been lost if I had asked to take the picture. As we say in the UK, it’s ‘horses for courses’. For street ‘portraits’ you might ask, but many shots are just straight ‘candids’.
