A Gone PhishingI’m taking a short break from TFIPM to recharge my batteries and get some reading done.

In the meantime, Ashley Lily Scarlett and I have started a new blog together. It’s a conversation in pictures and it’s called Between Scarlett and Guest. And to read about my visit with David Cook to the recent Richard Serra exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery, click here.

See you all soon.

Street Portrait (for and of Glug Glug), 2015– Street Portrait (for and of Glug Glug), 2015 –

Glug Glug was a little way ahead of me (on a road that used to join up to Charing Cross Road, but is being redeveloped), when her hat blew off. Which gave me the opportunity to retrieve it for her and ask for a portrait. Glug Glug was great about me taking a few shots, and my inability to get her name right (“You know, like drinking in comic strips”). This was the first shot and is my favourite. Thanks very much, Glug Glug! Hope you like your picture.

Street Portrait (for and of Willow), 2015– Street Portrait (for and of Willow), 2015 –

I spotted Willow going into music shops on Denmark Street, London, UK. At some point I got distracted and ended up having to run after her down the street. She was great about me taking a few shots. This was the second of three and is my favourite. Thanks very much, Willow! Hope you like your picture.

Street Portrait (for and of Marcela), 2015– Street Portrait (for and of Marcela), 2015 –

Marcela was on the phone when I spotted her. I waited for her to finish her call then went to ask her for a shot, but by the time I reached her she was on the phone again. So I hung around unconvincingly “scoping” the street under a spindly tree. Eventually I tried again, but I’m seriously out of shape and she was back on the phone before I could ask her for a shot.  The third time lucky. Marcela was great about me taking a few shots. This was the fourth and final and is my favourite. Thanks very much, Marcela! Hope you like your picture.

On weekdays I work within a mile’s radius of Kingsway. There was a pavement fire on Kingsway the Wednesday before the Easter weekend. Some electrical cabling caught fire and threatened at one point to ignite the gas main. Roads and pavements have been closed for over a week, so places I would normally saunter down are suddenly inaccessible. I feel strangely photographically marooned. Here’s a shot of the fire starting up. It would eventually spout tall flames from another grill further down the street.

Street Portrait (for and of Sofia), 2015– Street Portrait (for and of Sofia), 2015 –

These were taken outside Charing Cross Station. The moment I saw Sofia I knew I wanted to photograph them. And luckily for me they were great about it. These are the first and second shots – I couldn’t decide between them. Thanks very much, Sofia! Hope you like your pictures.

Street Portrait (for and of Gian), 2015– Street Portrait (for and of Gian), 2015 –

It’s been a few days since I was out taking shots in town. This was taken on Shelton Street in the centre of London. It was a case of me doing a double take when I first saw Gian (who made me think of Stranger Than Paradise for some reason), and having to run after him down the road. He was great about me taking a few shots. This was the second and is my favourite. Thanks very much, Gian! Hope you like your picture.

Street Portrait (for and of Kelpie), 2015– Street Portrait (for and of Kelpie), 2015 –

This was taken on Torrington Place, London, UK. Kelpie immediately got my attention – he was stylish and relaxed. And he was great about me taking a few shots of him. This was the first and is my favourite. Thanks very much, Kelpie! Great meeting you. Hope you like your picture.
