Wandering around with a friend from out of town, I found these people and faces, so many stories in London, right on my doorstep.
On the south bank of the Thames, these tourists were thrown into sharp silhouette by the brightly sunlit ship beyond.
At first I thought this man’s shoe was being highlighted by the sun but no, he is actually wearing canvas shoes with white rubber toecaps, his friend’s shadow just happens to be falling in line with the white rubber tip. The strange gesture of pointing his finger straight down, is in fact merely the gentleman getting a good grip on his walking stick, only visible by his right foot.
I sat for some time watching the passers-by in the courtyard garden of the Victoria and Albert Museum, this young boy seemed dedicated to improving his handstand technique in the water, he did it at least 10 times, the first was good, the last ones were excellent.The little girl to the right is desperate to try but I think too scared.
I looked up and this guy was towering over me, making everyone around look so small!
Its not often hat you see a plait this long and what a beautiful colour too.
