#138 Red Head

One from a week ago. She was chatting to her friends discussing something so passionately her fringe was swaying from side to side. Fascinating so I asked for a quick portrait.

#137 Peter

A lovely gentleman from Ireland. Very chatty and very friendly. He couldn't quite believe it I wanted to take a photo and gave me a peck on the cheek in all this excitement.

#135 Bike Girl

I was almost gone. Packing my camera away when this girl lined up waiting to take my bike spot. I liked her sleek look so I thought why not?! Putting my bike aside, I asked if I could snap a quick portrait before I gave my spot away and she kindly agreed. Thank you!

#134 Suspicious Mind

I spotted this gent's hat from afar and decided to stop him. He was quite formally dressed for Columbia Road although it was Sunday to be fair. He responded with a quick 'yes' at first but as I began to photograph him, he proceeded to ask me questions why I was stopping people, if I was going to ask for something in return and finally sounding slightly distressed he asked me if I would be expecting something in return in a very meaningful tone of voice. I laughed and assured him I wasn't expecting anything and walked on. It was almost endearing.

#133 Into the sun

I spotted this lovely lady and noticed her red hair immediately and with the sun behind her what else could I dream of?! The perfect rim made of sun.

#132 Oyster Man

Another Sunday at Columbia Road. Meet the lovely gent serving oysters in one of the side streets. He's got a fabulous smile. I managed to catch him in a quieter moment. He started laughing at me asking me why I was taking his photo. 

We chatted a little about how I am not a great fan of oysters same as his brother. Thank you for posing for me!

#131 Dog Models

Spent a lovely afternoon around Columbia Road. I spotted this gent waiting for his partner with these two beauties. While he was more than happy to pose for me, the dogs seemed to be very busy looking for their lady owner. Such beauties do not go unnoticed in a busy place like Columbia Road so we spotted them a couple of times more while wandering around the area and every time we saw them, they were posing for photos.

#130 Rescue Dog

A different take on the Londoners today. Meet the lovely rescue dog enjoying his fist snow. What a happy puppy he was! Jumping about and pouncing around in the snow. His lovely owner took him and his fellow rescue pup out for a walk around Ally Pally this morning. There is something special about rescue dogs. They know how much they owe you for giving them a new home.
