Shoreditch - 14 Oct 21 - Mandy

By nellacphoto  
I spotted Mandy (how could I not?!) standing by her bike at the roadside
I immediately approached her and complimented her on her hair ... which he had just tied up, ready to put her cycle helmet on

Asked her about doing some photos
She was a very cool American lady. She said she would love to but was literally just heading off to a meeting
But then said she had to prepare a couple of things on her phone first and was happy for me to photograph her doing that if I wanted to
I did!
She then immediately let her hair down again

So I took a few quick shots and asked her to look at me a couple of times

It's a pity because she would have been great to photograph in a proper shoot
But all credit to her and I'm grateful for the few seconds she gave me

Just love that hair colour Colin, I can see why you were drawn to her...

A very interesting character, Colin and I think these shots show her character rather more than a standard shoot would've done.
All credit to you for managing to get these excellent shots of her while she was otherwise engaged.

Hi, Colin

My Award again….not so much for the photos this time, but for your pluck and tenacity, in acquiring them from complete strangers….You must, almost have enough for a book on the ladies of Shoreditch ……Do one featuring makes and you will have a set …. To equal books done by the…Street Photography Greats…

I follow your progress with great interest…. .

The big city, enables this kind of project… I only get that if and when a pal takes me to Coventry…. ..so most of my characters are home-town folk.

Keep them coming please….I’ll pre order a copy of the book 🤓

You're showing that so many people are reasonable, kind and outgoing. These are things we forget too easily.

And... She has a wicked streak somewhere in there.
