Another powerful set Colin. Great find the colour of the shop and jacket work well another lovely young lady might have been better if she gave you a little smile but still great features.

Terrific Colin and yes; book please.
In the meantime I am going to dig out my pink jacket, flick a load of colour over it, ride my bike over it, mince around Shoreditch
and wait for the photographers. It's art Colin.

PS Have you seen Dougie Wallaces' books on street photography in London. REally worth a look but he is fearsome and really in your face. Some remarkable images though. There is one called Shoreditch Wild Life.

Why doesn't she smile? 😂

The funny thing is Jeff, she was very smiley when we spoke
Very keen to give me her business card
And generally very happy to pose for photos in front of her new gallery

But yes, as soon as I raised the camera, she went into serious artist mode
There is a video of her on her website
https://www.saiakunanagallery.com

I'm glad she gave me her card, because when I asked her her name and she told me, I couldn't fathom a word of it! Grin

The jacket she wore when she painted her shop wall. Love her black hair in all that pink. Excellent set once again Colin.

Didn't know you had a first visit? Smile

Cracking images. Delighted to make it 30. 😀😀😀

Funny how posing...she is so self-aware, and of the image she projects....and smiling was definitely not part of that image. Pulling off all these sets of photos takes a lot of chutzpa....and you definitely have it.

Another great set of photos, Colin.

Thanks Peter

Is it chutzpah? I'm not sure

I've always had this motto in life ... "You don't ask, you don't get"

Asking for street portraits in Shoreditch I do get a lot of Yesses ... but also get quite a few Nos

All part of the fun I guess
As long as you can quickly put the rejection of the Nos behind you and then keep on asking
