I’m not sure how well “street photography” is received and I am certainly not very good at it, but I thought I would post this anyway. It was taken this past weekend at the exhibition of vintage cars on Regent St preparing for the run from London to Brighton on Sunday.

Perhaps this chap was just trying to grab a quick 40 winks, but I thought the expression of contentment on his face was priceless.

Hope you enjoy it.

A fantastic portrait, Greg, what a wonderful expression you have captured. The London to Brighton run used to be a favourite of mine, hope you took some more images of this wonderful event. Carol

How did I miss that one Brian? Thanks all for your comments - very much appreciated. Does make me smile when I look at it. Barb and Carol, didn't get to see the actual race but will definitely make the effort on the day next year.
