– Alison, 2013 –

Since 5th May 2012 I have been walking up to strangers and asking them if I can take their photograph. I only photograph the stylish and the interesting and all of the people here are one or the other or both. Londoners (temporary or permanent) remain a really cool bunch. These shots were taken between July and December 2013.

As always, I’ve included a few previously unseen portraits. For one reason or another they did not get posted at the time (it’s quite often to do with repetition) but, anyway, remedied now. This time, no one has been edited out.


Kitty, Nigel, Viveka and Alison (at the top of the post) deserve to be shown in full size, so here they are. They were lovely one and all and very patient while I tinkered with my camera. Viveka, I’m sorry I’ve forgotten your company’s name – drop it in the comments and I’ll update this text. Thanks for stopping, all of you.

If you want to find out a little more about these fine people, a quick search of TFIPM by the person’s name should bring up the original post.

Finally, a massive thank you to everyone who has stopped and given me their time – it really is very much appreciated. It was a pleasure meeting you all. Hope you like your picture!


This post is dedicated to George Skeggs, my first street portraitee – without him there would have been no beginning…


There’s also a reason for celebration here – this is my 500th post. I never thought I’d get this far (and the blog has changed radically since that first post, two and a bit years ago). It’s been fun, which is mainly because of the people who visit and comment and click the like button (and to a certain cool collaborator, Richard – thank you my friend) – you all give me a big kick. Thank you!
