#50 Soho Barber

This gentleman was sitting outside a hairdressing saloon in Soho having a few beers with his friend. I watched them people watching and making comments about the passers-by. I could not resist approaching and interrupting them.

He wasn't keen to pose excusing himself as unphotogenic but agreed in the end. As it turns out they both work at the hairdressers and since their working day was over, they were enjoying a few on the bench outside their workplace. The shop itself was fascinating as it's an old fishmonger's with tiling and an antique till. Loved their decor.


  1. Doesn't look like your typical hair dresser.

  2. Aah! I like clicking people on the street too, but I wonder if they be 'ok' with the photos being published online :(

    I loved this photo...I am a londoner too :) liked your the link from CPB..

  3. Thanks Steffe.

    Chintan: I tell people what I do with the photos when I take photos and I give them my card to get in touch with me to get their copy so they know the photos are going online. I prefer street portraits to candid because they know :)
