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

Ruby was crossing Neal Street, London, UK when I spotted him. And he was moving fast, so my weary old bones got to see some action. Once I’d caught up with him, Ruby was great about me taking a few shots (in front of the Nike store’s orange window, I think). This is the first of two and is my favourite. Thanks very much for stopping, Ruby. Hope you like your picture.

Since May 2012, I have been asking strangers if I can take their photograph. I’m drawn to the stylish and the interesting.

If you are interested in learning a bit of background to any of the shots above, a quick search of TFIPM by the person’s name should bring up the original post. This post is dedicated to George Skeggs, my first street portraitee – without him there would have been no beginning…
