Tonight was a first … never before have I shoved a camera at close range into the face of a stranger without asking.
I like this photo and it will only encourage me ;).
I was on my way to get the metro home when I saw these three huddled in a doorway and I simply raised my camera, took a shot, gave them the thumbs up and a smile and walked on. I wish I had handed them one of my cards now but perhaps that would have killed the moment … there is something very fleeting about this photograph that I and no doubt I alone will treasure.
Seconds earlier, the following gentlemen pushed themselves in front of my camera and I was happy to oblige. At this point I was on my way home from an evening out in a real ale pub with no less than 13 hand pulled pumps so it is highly debatable who had had more to drink at this point and I did ask them their names but it now escapes me what they are so I can only refer to the following as Geordie Revellers … there was a Brian and a Tommy and that’s about all that I can remember …
