Walking around the streets of London, camera in hand, I come across all sorts of little cameos. Some are obvious, some not so obvious. And some are only in the mind of the photographer – the street scenes that create themselves unintentionally.
It was lunch-time. Builders, decorators, workmen were having their midday break. Perched anywhere. This man was seated just in front of a boarded-up shop front that was undergoing a makeover – the posters themselves advertising the soon-to-be-opened new shop. Perhaps the site was where he worked. He appeared lost in his own thoughts, watching the world go by.
I was struck by the inherent tension created by the two men – staring intently in two entirely different directions.
