#129 Alex The Pearly King of St. Pancras

There he was raising money for charity. Charitable activities are a key part of  Pearly King and Queen tradition. He was happy to pose for me and his friend another Pearly King was keen to adjust his collar to ensure he looked presentable. Pure class!

#128 Street Photographer

Yet another tog. What can I say? There are plenty of us to go around. I saw him watching the street and waiting for THE shot. Rude as I am, I interrupted him and asked if I could shoot him. He laughed but agreed. Thanks!

#127 Another smoker

I spotted this chap taking a break from his work getting ready to smoke his pipe. He was quite happy to pose for me only inquiring if I myself was a local on the street full of tourists.

#126 Smoker

I spotted this chap waiting for a friend and asked for a snap. He kindly agreed. Not entirely happy with the way I captured smoke here but it's the best I could do with three shots.

#125 Frozen Blonde

This lovely lady was braving freezing cold last Sunday to enjoy Columbia Road Flower Market. I liked her style so asked her to pose for me. Her friend was quite happy to snap photos of me snapping her.

#123 Adam

Meet Adam. I saw him walking across a road at Portobello Market and was immediately drawn to his hair. Isn't it just awesome?!

#122 Happy New Year!

Hey everyone,

Happy New Year everyone! Sorry for being away for a while but my mojo had a bit of holidays.

Headed out to Portobello Road today to test my new camera and stop some strangers. I ended up by the same wall I started street portraits almost a year ago. Waited for quite a while for someone to come by who would interest me. A couple of men passed by and I wasn't quick enough to approach them. I guess I need to brush up my street skills but in the end stopped this lovely lady who politely obliged.
