We were all getting blown to pieces over the Millennium Bridge today. I saw this rather dapper chap coming towards me struggling to keep his hat on. I think he quite liked me taking his picture. He gave me a nice big smile as I passed by.

PS: If any of you peeps are in London over the next couple of weeks it's well worth popping into the Royal Festival Hall to see the World Press winners. Harrowing stuff, but amazing.

Dapper indeed Chris.
But I feel a bit of ''dapperness'' is lost with the ''girly'' bag he has !!

You made his day!
We won't be in London, but for anyone interested there's a collection of the pictures here. Harrowing indeed.

He is a character and has obviously paid attention to detail in his attire - even his socks are co-ordinated - and a lovely smile as wellSmile

If you hadn't told me about the wind, I would have thought he was about to tip his hat in honour of your beauty Smile

EXCELLENT shot of this chipper chap, Chris Grin

At first glance he reminds me of James Garner!

The lady behind looks quite suspicious about the whole thing. She may be undercover Secret Service watching his back. He may be in possession of the Rockford Files Smile
