The collector

He was reasonably nicely dressed. He did not look as if he was in any special need. I just think that he followed the maxim “waste not want not” So he carefully checked the dustbins for returnable bottles.

Smoke break

He sat enjoying the midday sun. He had just taken the last puff and carefully put his cigarette out. I wondered wether he was waiting for his wife or just out to enjoy the weather.

Been shopping

She walked out of the shop. She was old and bent and struggling along pulling her trolley. As I often do when I see people like that, I wondered about her background. What was she going back to? A lonely flat, a frail husband? Did she have adult children to support her?
or grandchildren to bring light into her life. We are daily surrounded by so many fates, some sad some happy. Behind me a homeless was lying on the wet pavement in an alcoholic sleep a couple of empty bottles next to him. Life moved on

The street photographer

As we walked past Hotel Russell we were approached by this elderly gent, who offered to photograph us. He was clutching a small point and shoot camera and a note book. We politely declined. With the popularity of "selfies" he must have gone out of business. Camera Nikon D5000
