Cat and The Joker

29841978690_a548a12539_k

Walking around the Northern Quarter in Manchester early on a Sunday morning I noticed the amazing colour of Cameron’s hair and the glint in the badges on Louann’s bag. Being a badge geek myself (and wishing I could have green hair) it was worth stopping to them and having a chat. They were very happy to pose for me on Manchester fantastic graffiti backdrops and were natural at showing attitude. It was fun to meet such inspirational people on a lazy day with such interesting personalities. Cannot wait to send them this image.

Reinaldo Miranda is an outstanding street performer and looked the part. He was more than happy to pose for a portrait and swept the Manchester crowds away with his entertainment.

Infectious Smiles & Ice Creams

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.

Fast Food for a Jilted Generation

Simple food made for peanuts, costing small fortunes in prime locations. Wheeled into place and powered by Calor magic. Old traditions do last centuries.

2 Down, 8 Across

3 Down, 5 Across

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.
