I met this couple in a shopping centre car park. I loved their car and asked to take a portrait with them, they was more than happy to say yes.
There is a lot of detail on the car and you have to look close to see it all. It reminded me of Mad Max, which they took as a compliment.

Chilling out in the warm bank holiday evening sun. Luisa clocked my camera. We chatted for a moment about the Yashica and photography in general before I plucked up the courage to ask for a portrait.
Luisa was great fun to photo. She has a wonderful flirtatious personality and a glowing smile that made working with her very easy. Definitely fast witted and funny by far. It was a delight to spend time chatting to her whilst she sold ice creams to the happy crowd.

Bumped into the music artist that is Peaky whilst walking around the market square in Camden Town, London.

5pm Friday in the business district of London is always busy. Thousands of people rushing away from the big smoke and heading towards the weekend so they can forget their rat life ways.
It’s a stressful time trying to get the tube and fighting your way through frustrated behaviours.
And through all this congestion a simple moment of calm she sits in full view whilst staying hidden.
Maybe she had time to kill.
Maybe she had nowhere to go.
Maybe waiting for the next bus, just to get a seat.
No-one cared to ask.
Or maybe, 2 Down, 8 Across was just too much of a challenge to give up now.
